The race for Golden Boot
You will agree with me that it is the wish of every forward to score the highest number of goals in a single season to win the Gold Boot, an individual achievement that will add more value to any footballer. However, with all due respect to Jorginho who is currently the spot-kick taker but I think Belgium International should take his place. If the man in jersey No9 for Chelsea should take this position it will help him compete favorably with the likes of Harry Kane, Cristiano Ronaldo, Mohamed Salah. Sometimes penalties can help a player claim the award, for instance, CR7 netted seven goals from the spot-kick making it a total of 29 and he eventually emerged as the highest goal scorer in Serie A last campaign.
If a striker is not given the opportunity to take penalty, it may affect his tally, recall what transpired between Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard against Wigan Athletic when the English man denied him the opportunity to go pass Weyne Rooney in the race for the Golden Boot, but the Ivorian later scored a hat-trick in second half including a penalty handed to him by Lampard, Chelsea won 8:0 and also emerged Champions.
Do you agree with me that Chelsea should make Lukaku their Penalty taker?
