Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma has defended Chelsea midfielder Jorginho following his penalty miss in Italy’s goalless draw against Switzerland.
Jorginho has now faced criticism that he should be taken off penalties for Chelsea following the arrival of Romelu Lukaku with one particular Twitter user claiming that he has “no idea why people call him [Jorginho] an elite penalty taker.”
Donnarumma said: “In training, we challenge each other, and he always scores.
“Unfortunately, he didn’t succeed tonight, but we all know he’s an incredible penalty taker. He, unfortunately, happened to miss [the penalty].”
