Jorginho’s penalty display has come under massive criticisms since his penalty miss against Krasnodar.

Jorginho rarely misses a penalty, but all that changed when Alisson made a good save to deny him in the 2-0 defeat to Liverpool.

Jorginho has a technique of taking a hop before kicking the ball during his penalty, but former Manchester United and Chelsea goalkeeper Mark Bosnich, has criticised his style and thinks that he’d limit himself once the goalkeeper decides not to jump.

“That’s a little bit of an evolution from what Dwight Yorke did, where he would run up at a medium pace and wait for the goalkeeper to go,” former Manchester United goalkeeper Mark Bosnich told i.

“That jump, we’ve seen it with Jorginho and Fernandes, can limit your options as a penalty taker especially if the goalkeeper doesn’t move.

“With the jump, I would have fancied myself because I’d have thought whether he jumps or not, I’m just going to wait till that final moment. Once he jumps it’s hard when he lands to do any type of adjustment.

“You’ll find that if the goalkeeper doesn’t move, it limits the taker’s options where he’s going to hit it.”
