Lampard axes Jorginho, confirms new Chelsea penalty taker

Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, has confirmed Jorginho has been removed as the team’s No.1 penalty taker and replaced by Timo Werner.

Werner converted two spot-kicks on Wednesday, as the Blues beat Rennes 3-0 in the Champions League.

After the match, Lampard was asked about why Werner was on penalty duty despite Jorginho also being on the pitch.

“I spoke to Jorginho first because he’s been brilliant at taking penalties,” Lampard replied.

“It’s more missing a couple recently that I felt it was time to change. Jorgi’s answer was as professional as I’d expect. He only wants to score them but he was fine with that.
