How Kepa Arrizabalaga substitution debacle has helped us, Sarri

Kepa Arrizabalaga

West London outfit Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is now reacting positively to the drama that ensued in the Carabao Cup finals where his side lost against Man City in the penalty shootout.

Kepa Arrizabalaga who was at the centre of the whole drama was asked to make way for the second goalkeeper in the game as it was nearing a penalty shootout but he refused, telling Sarri who was by the touchline not to worry.

The situation has raised lots of worries about the state of Chelsea and their dressing room as well as the ability of the manager to have control over the players in the dressing room.

Although, Kepa Arrizabalaga has been punished as he was left out of the London derby game against Tottenham as well as forfeiting a week’s wage as a way of teaching him a lesson but the manager says the whole situation has turned good for his side.

According to the former Napoli boss, the whole debacle has now made his West London outfit stronger than they used to be.

He noted that his team has been able to win four games in the last five as well as conceding just a goal which is good for a top-four chase.
