I know the manager doesn’t like him - Neville on Kepa's Chelsea future

Gary Neville has spoken about Kepa’s future with Chelsea.

Although Kepa wants to improve his form and stay put at Chelsea, Neville believes that it’s clear that head coach Frank Lampard does not like the 26 year old goalkeeper.

Discussing the situation with Stadium Astro, Manchester United legend Neville said: ‘Lampard will act, he’s [Kepa] not settled at all at Chelsea and he’s not been particularly good.

Kepa has been in poor season the entire last season and the Blues are disappointed that their £72m goalkeeper lost more goals than saved.

‘David de Gea has been good at United for five or six years so I think he deserves more credit and more of a chance because he has come through a difficult early period but then he was world-class for four of five seasons and was Manchester United’s player of the year.

‘Kepa is struggling at Chelsea and I don’t think Frank Lampard fancies him.’

‘The problem they’ve got is that they spent £70m on him which is just an enormous amount of money and they won’t get that back,’ he added.

‘Frank Lampard has left him out now numerous times so he’s not hidden the fact that he doesn’t quite like the way he’s performing so they’ve got a real challenge with the acquisition.

‘I think Kepa’s said he’s fighting for his spot. We’ll see what happens but I know the manager doesn’t like him.’
