Werner reveals Lampard has given him the responsibility of taking penalties

Chelsea’s Jorginho has had a pretty rough 2020 after being dropped from the side after football returned following the lockdown. 

His most recent problem has to do with one of the most unique aspects of him as a player, his penalty technique.

For his former club Napoli, Jorginho technically scored from every penalty he took. Although he missed one, he scored off the rebound.

His first penalty miss for Chelsea came against Manchester City in the 2019 Carabao Cup as Ederson guessed the right way in the shootout

The Italian missed his first normal time penalty against Liverpool this season when Alisson saved his effort from the spot. 

The vice-captain was given a chance to make amends in the Champions League against Krasnodar, but hit the post and failed to convert. 

Frank Lampard explained how it is okay for the penalty taker to miss from the spot after the victory in Russia. 

“If you’re going to take penalties as regularly as he does – and I did – you’re going to miss some,” 

“You might actually miss a couple because of the level of goalkeeper and the pressured situation.

“It was not normal that he had such a great record – it was unique and stood out. I’ve got no worries with his confidence and he shouldn’t have. I’m not concerned about that at all but I’ll speak to him about it myself.”

Frank Lampard has since asked Timo Werner to take the penalties for Chelsea, as the forward revealed himself. Here is what the German forward had to say after the game against Rennes:

“We played very well today. Both penalties were the right decision – the red card was also good for us as it meant we could control the game.

“Before the game, the manager told me that if we got a penalty I should take it. Jorginho is cool with that.

“I hope I can continue to take them When you want to score 20 or more goals you have to take a few penalties, so I am happy.”

This responsibility on the shoulders of Werner will surely take him an extra step in the race for the Golden Boot. Considering the number of spot-kicks given away these days in the league, it might be no surprise if the German scores 10+ goals from 12 yards out.
