Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed that he’s confident in Jorginho’s penalty ability, despite his recent miss.

Jorginho had dropped from his penalty duties, losing his place to Timo Werner after recently missing from the spot.

However, the 29-year-old scored Chelsea’s only game of the game against Krasnodar, from the penalty spot as he sent the goalkeeper the wrong way, in his usual fashion.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has sang the praises of the Italy international, and also admitted that he has confidence in his ability. Lampard also hailed his role as vice-captain and the way he handles himself professionally.

Lampard told the media: “I didn’t doubt his ability in taking penalties. It’s normal when you take as many for club and country as he does that you can miss.

“He missed a couple in succession but, as we saw the other night, he’s taking penalties for us. He’s confident in his style and I’m confident in that too so that’s not a problem.

“He’s vice-captain of the club and he gives everything whenever he plays and trains, and with how he acts, so I’m delighted with him.”
