Frank Lampard Takes Jorginho Off Penalty Duty For Timo Werner

Frank Lampard made the tough decision to drop Jorginho’s penalty responsibilities in the 3-0 win over Rennes.

Timo Werner converted twice from the spot as Jorginho watched on.

“We played very well today,” Werner said after the game. “Both penalties were the right decision – the red card was also good for us as it meant we could control the game.

“Before the game, the manager told me that if we got a penalty I should take it. Jorginho is cool with that. I hope I can continue to take them When you want to score 20 or more goals you have to take a few penalties, so I am happy.”

Jorginho had missed a penalty against Krasnodar last week after which Lampard made the switch. He said, “It was not an easy decision (on penalty taker) because Jorginho has been pretty faultless.

“He had missed two recently and Timo came in and scored. I had a word with Jorghino and his answer was perfect, he said he didn’t mind who came in to take them he just wanted to score. Timo came in and scored so I am happy.”
