Former goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer impressed by Kepa

According to former Chelsea Goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga is working hard and improving and he sees Kepa as a future club legend.

Spanish goalkeeper might not have “set the world alight” but he can be one of the best in the future, believes Mark.

This season, Chelsea have recorded just one clean sheet in the 2018-19 campaign. But Schwarzer thinks that the most expensive Goalkeeper in the world can be Blues keeper for years and eventually go down as one of the greats.

Former Australian goalkeeper told The Athletic, “I think Kepa has grown, but it’s a massive step up from Athletic Bilbao.”

“There is always that added attention. Chelsea over the years have had top, top keepers. Following Cech and Courtois is no easy feat for anyone.”

“It’s hard for anyone to compare with someone like Cech, who won every trophy there is to win. We can only really do that with Kepa 10 years down the line. With Thibaut, he was there for a shorter amount of time. I was a big fan of his, but longevity is huge so Petr stands alone.”

“At 25, Kepa is very young in goalkeeping terms. He has a long way to go. He could be there for the next 15 years easily – if he stays fit and continues to get better and better.
