Kepa talks about rivalry with De Gea

Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has recently started three back to back games for his national Spanish team.

He has replaced David De Gea at the helm it seems, at least temporarily. However, Kepa is keeping his feet firmly stuck on the ground and wants to keep working and playing together with De Gea.

“Whoever plays will do very well. Of course I understand that David is sad, we all train to play and then it is the decision of the coach, and it is up to you to respond well.”

“I have a great relationship with David,” Kepa continued. “We train a lot of the time together apart from the team, as well with Pau Lopez, because we are keepers.

“We have a relationship from many years ago and we don’t need to say anything each other to help each other.”

Asked if he feels like Spain’s number one keeper, Kepa added: “I just felt tonight because I am not feeling the main goalkeeper now.

“I am just one more out of the three keepers Luis Enrique has been calling in and when I have the chance of playing I try to add my experience to the team.”
