Menday’s howler against Leeds United

Stand-in Skipper, Jorginho has reacted following Chelsea 3-0 defeat to Leeds United at Elland Road on Sunday.

The 30 year-old Italian midfielder, was in shock watching Edouard Mendy gifted Brenden Aaronson the opener 33 minutes into the game.

And he said; “We started well in the first 15 or 20 minutes, then we got a bit frustrated from them scoring and we started doing stuff we weren’t supposed to.

“We got stuck. We conceded and then we lost our heads, which cannot happen. We got punished.

“We knew it was coming [Leeds’ intensity and high press]. We were creating a lot and following the plan but we were not finishing it and then we started doing different stuff.

“We were playing some balls we don’t usually. If we had kept following the plan, and worked our way out of pressure, maybe it would be a different story.”

“We have to move on. These things can happen but it is about how we come back in the next game.”

The Euro 2020 winner also had some words of sympathy for Mendy. He said: “Everyone has been there. He is strong and has a strong mentality. It’s time to move on.”
