Chelsea’s Palmer warned over penalty style


Former Manchester United forward, Garth Crooks, has given a piece of advice to Chelsea’s Cole Palmer, over his penalty style.

Crooks, who was speaking on BBC, warned Palmer that he could land in trouble for disrespecting his opponents with his Panenka penalty style.

He went on to say that players know how to handle such audacious finishes.

“The way Palmer dispatched his penalty showed he has supreme confidence in his own ability,” Crooks said.

“But his dinked finish was bordering on ‘taking the Michael’ and players have a way of dealing with that. If he is not careful he may have his wings clipped.”

Palmer scored a brace, including a cheeky Panenka, against Burnley in their recent Premier League match at the weekend.

However, Chelsea drew 2-2 with the Clarets, despite Palmer’s excellent performance, after conceding twice to a 10-man side.
