“He’s arrogant and silly” – Chelsea legend slams Chelsea player for what he did against Manchester United

Former Chelsea striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink slammed Jorginho as ‘arrogant’ after his error that led to Jadon Sancho’s goal in the 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Jorginho attempted to bring down the high ball with his foot with Sancho and Marcus Rashford closing in but his poor touch ultimately sent Sancho in on goal before the winger calmly slipped the ball past Edouard Mendy.

Hasselbaink was unimpressed with Jorginho’s attempt to control the ball as he should have headed the ball instead.

“He should head it. It’s arrogance. I’ll take it down from the sky and play,” Hasselbaink told Sky Sports.

“Two men coming at you, head the ball back. Sancho takes the goal really well.

“Technically he’s a very good player but he’s not blessed with pace. So he’s never gonna get beyond Sancho.

“So you don’t take the risk, just head it back have people behind you. Still need one goal to win the match but now it’s a mountain to climb. Silly.”
