Jorginho's stellar penalty record 'was not normal' - Lampard backs Chelsea midfielder to regain confidence


Jorginho Chelsea 2020

Frank Lampard has backedJorginhoto regain his confidence after the midfielder missed another penalty on Wednesday night.

The Italy international had only missed one penalty in his career prior to this season, but also failed to score from the spot against Liverpool earlier this campaign.

Jorginho's miss did not damage Chelsea on the night as the Blues defeated the Russian side4-0 to clinch their firstChampions League win of 2020-21.

Speaking ahead of Saturday's Premier League match with Burnley, Chelsea boss Lampard said it was only natural that Jorginho wouldn't see his stellar penalty record continue.

"With Jorginho, if you're going to take penalties as regularly as he does - and I did - you're going to miss some," Lampard said."You might actually miss a couple because of the level of goalkeeper and the pressured situation.

"It was not normal that he had such a great record - it was unique and stood out. I've got no worries with his confidence and he shouldn't have. I'm not concerned about that at all but I'll speak to him about it myself."

AfterWednesday night's match, Lampard admitted that there would be discussions over who would be Chelsea's top penalty taker moving forwardwith Timo Werner netting from the spot in the second half againstKrasnador.

"Jorginho has had an incredibly successful rate of scoring penalties in his career, particularly at Chelsea," Lampard said on Wednesday. "My feeling is that when you take as many penalties as he does there can be periods when you can miss one or two. I've experienced that as a player.
