The keeper refused to come off during Chelsea’s loss to Man City in the Carabao Cup final despite Maurizio Sarri wanting to bring on Willy Caballero right before the penalty shoot out.
Kepa Arrizabalaga looked to be injured but the keeper just stayed put refusing to be taken off and this rude behaviour from the Chelsea No 1 has clearly infuriated a large number of people.
Pundits have come out to slam the shot-stopper claiming that he disrespected the manager infront of so many people and have urged Sarri to drop him for the clash vs Spurs.
While Kepa Arrizabalaga has tried to clear the air by saying that he did not want to disrespect the manager but the fans are having none of the excuses.
And now reports are suggesting that Kepa and Caballero had a row inside the Wembley dressing room right after the Carabao Cup final wherein the former told Willy that he was the better keeper.
At first, Sarri had tried to bury the whole fiasco claiming that it was just a big misunderstanding but before Chelsea face Spurs, the Italian has dropped a hint that Kepa Arrizabalaga could very well drop down to the bench on Wednesday night.
He said: “It will be a decision for the good of the group. For the other players, all the players.
“He has to be ready. He made a mistake. A big mistake. There are some consequences.
“If the consequence is to play, he has to be ready to play. If the consequence is the bench, he has to be ready to go to the bench.
Now all eyes will be on the Chelsea teamsheet which can very well decide the long-term future for Kepa Arrizabalaga at Stamford Bridge.
