Chelsea legend can’t believe Rob Green’s deformed finger after 20 years in goal

Chelsea legend Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink was left shocked by Rob Green’s finger after over 20 years of professional goalkeeping.

The pair were at Stamford Bridge, alongside Bobby Zamora, to preview the Blues’ clash with Manchester City on Saturday lunchtime.

Green, who is a former England international, has 267 Premier League appearances to his name across spells at Norwich, West Ham, QPR, and Chelsea.

And the 41-year-old wasn’t shy about showing off his finger when the conversation moved onto the ferocity of shots in the Premier League.

The Dutchman, renowned for his powerful shots, was shocked to see Green’s disfigured finger.

“That’s from one of Jimmy’s free-kicks about 15 years ago,” Green joked as he showed off his finger to the two former strikers.

Green continued: “One of the fundamental things about the Premier League compared to other leagues is they kick the ball a lot harder.

“Over a number of years it’s [his finger] decided to gradually die, and that’s where it’s ended up.”

Hasselbaink could barely believe what he was looking at, and he noted: “That is dedication!”

While Zamora joked: “Are you pointing at me? Stop pointing at me!”

Green hung up his boots in 2019, and he spent the final year of his career as a third-choice keeper at Chelsea behind Thibaut Courtois and Willy Caballero.

The keeper failed to make a single appearance for the Blues, but he lifted the Europa League trophy in Baku during his final game.
