Tuchel explains why Jorginho doesn’t need penalty advice

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel explains why Italy midfielder Jorginho doesn’t need advice on how to take penalties.

The former Napoli star converted two penalty kicks in a row to allow Chelsea seal wins against Tottenham and Sheffield United.

“I liked them both, because thy were both into the net,” Tuchel said at a press conference.

"I don't judge how a player takes a penalty and I would never give him advice on how to do it. Because I played football on a lower level and I know how much pressure there is from the spot.

"I did not give him advice, Jorginho can take penalties as he feels safer and I am glad that he managed to score both of them because they were both decisive."

Jorginho was among the best Italians abroad last week-end along with Alessandro Florenzi who assisted Mauro Icardi in PSG’s 2-0 win over Marseille.
