Jorginho wears the wrong socks as Chelsea debut new kit against Watford
CHELSEA debuted their new home kit against Watford on Sunday – but Jorginho was wearing the wrong socks.
As Chelsea beat Watford 3-0 at Stamford Bridge to move into third place they did so wearing their new 2019/2020 home kit.
However, journalist Kevin DeVries noticed Italian midfielder Jorginho donned the wrong socks – with his completely white opposed to the correct ones with a blue and red ring around the knee.
Chelsea released their new jersey at the start of May with the kit paying homage to Stamford Bridge with several images of their iconic stadium woven into the design.
It is believed the reason Chelsea pay such great tribute to Stamford Bridge is because they did not think they would be playing there next season.
It is understood Chelsea chiefs were planning to build a new £1billlon home and knock down their 40,000 capacity stadium.
While the new stadium was being built the Blues would have temporarily moved into Wembley – like London rivals Tottenham did in 2017.
Tottenham had spent 18 months playing in England’s national stadium while their new 60,000 seated ground was being built.
Spurs this season delayed the opening to their new home several times following construction problems and only played their first game at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium at the beginning of April.
Chelsea officially announced their plans to build a new stadium would be shelved in a statement.
The statement said: “Chelsea Football Club announces today that it has put its new stadium project on hold.
“No further pre-construction design and planning work will occur.
“The club does not have a time frame set for reconsideration of its decision.”
