What I will do to Kepa for refusing to be substituted- Sarri reveals

Chelsea head coach, Maurizio Sarri has reacted to the unexpected incident that happened during the side’s Carabao Cup final with Manchester City.

TheEcho reports that Chelsea lost 4-3 on penalties to the Cityzens after a goalless full-time draw.

However, during the latter part of the second-half of extra-time, Kepa Arizzabalaga was injured and Sarri decided to replace him with substitute Willy Caballero.

Bizarrely, the goalkeeper disobeyed his manager, insisting that he was in a good shape to carry on.

The unprofessional act of Kepa stalled playing process for a while until Referee Jon Moss had to speak with Sarri.

Reacting after the match, Sarri said: “It was a big misunderstanding. I thought he had cramp. I didn’t want a GK in the penalty shoot-out in that condition. The GK wanted only to let me know he was OK. Kepa was right, in the wrong way, in his behaviour.

“I was really angry. I want to talk to him because he needs to understand we can get in trouble especially with you [the media]. I will explain the situation, without any other problem.”
