'Referee ran past him': Chelsea youngster pokes fun at 'slow' Jorginho on FIFA
Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori poked fun at Jorginho and reminded everyone about that one time when the Italy international was outrun by a referee.
The 22-year-old has answered some questions about the Chelsea players’ stats on FIFA 20 in an interview with Soccer AM.
When asked about the fastest player at Chelsea, Tomori said: “Personally, I’d say I’m up there with (Antonio) Rudiger because if you see the stats from matchdays, it’s me and him who are at the top.
“I think Callum (Hudson-Odoi) comes in lately with a good score.’
When Christian Pulisic was revealed having the highest pace stats on FIFA 20 among Chelsea players, Tomori was not surprised.
“For the first 10-15 yards, he is really, really quick. And on the pitch, it what really matters,” he said.
Then he was asked about the slowest player at Chelsea. Tomori laughed at first but then said, “It’s Jorginho, isn’t it?”
Chelsea’s slowest player on FIFA 20 is actually Olivier Giroud.
The England international then explained that the moment referee Michael Oliver burst past him during Chelsea’s home defeat against Liverpool last September.

Interestingly, in another interview for Soccer AM, Jorginho was also the first name mentioned by Callum Hudson-Odoi when he was asked the same question.
However, Tomori hailed Jorginho and Giroud, saying: “They have got a yard (in their head), they always think two steps ahead.”
