Jorginho reveals why Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa was fined

December 25th, 2019 by Olasunkanmi Ibikunle

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho claims teammate Kepa Arrizabalaga was fined for being “a little fat.”

The revelation was made as Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic played a game with ESPN Brazil where one of them would have to guess the name of a Chelsea player using a series of clues from the other.

According to The Sun, when Kovacic was given Kepa’s name, he presented a clue to Jorginho by saying: “He’s a little fat.”

When Jorginho responded by saying that there was at least two Chelsea players who have had issues with weight, Kovacic cheekily added: “He could be a manager.”

That was a hilarious dig at Kepa’s infamous bust-up with former manager Maurizio Sarri in last season’s Carabao Cup final against Manchester City.

And armed with two key clues, Jorginho was finally able to say the mystery man was indeed Kepa.

The Italian then said: “He paid a fine. I think he’s paid a fine because he’s chubby.

“Kepa? You killed him in this one. He will remember that.”

Frank Lampard’s list of fines was leaked online earlier this season, but there is no suggestion that players who are overweight are docked any cash.

However, Jorginho has now indicated that players carrying excess baggage may have to cough up as punishment.

Manchester City legend identifies Chelsea star Guardiola must stop to win clash at Etihad

November 19th, 2019 by Olasunkanmi Ibikunle

Shaun Goater has identified the key Chelsea player his side must stop to ensure the two-time reigning champions get back on track in the Premier League.

The Manchester City legend does see any of the Blues frontmen like Tammy Abraham, Christian Pulisic as a major threat Pep Guardiola should work on.

He pinpoints the brilliance of Jorginho as the major reason for the success of the London club so far this season.

The midfielder was much-maligned in his debut season at Stamford Bridge under Maurizio Sarri but Goater insists that the playmaker has become the number one man to stop this weekend.

“Jorginho has been brilliant. He is huge in the transition and how they play,” Goater, who was speaking on behalf of GentingBet, told

“When they transition the play from back to front he is critical during those moments. Man City must stop him because he provides the supply for Abraham and the wingers.

“He provides that directly but also indirectly as well. The pass he gives into the eight and ten then goes into the wide players and Tammy.

“It’s crazy because it looked like Chelsea fans didn’t like him a year ago. He looks really good in that role and position.”
