Kepa Arrizabalaga is still hopeful of turning around his Chelsea fortunes.
Two disappointing performances against Liverpool and Brighton sent him back down the pecking order this season and now, he looks resigned to stay there with Eduoard Mendy starting.
“I feel good, strong and confident,” Kepa said after joining up with Spain’s national team. “Maybe not the dream and expected situation.
“We have to experience things like this during our career as footballers. I need to carry on working calmly. I am confident to turn the situation around. When I have the opportunity to play I will try to do it the best possible.”
Lampard has refused to criticise Kepa openly and believes the Spaniard still has a future at the club. When asked about Lampard’s comments, Kepa said, “I think you should ask him as they were his words. Each coach is different on his communication with the players. I am not going to comment on those words.
“I feel the confidence of the club and also here in the national team. As I have said, I am playing for two top teams with two magnificent coaches. I am only focused on the next match trying to add if possible. ”
Kepa started for Spain in the friendly against Portugal on Wednesday night. He might get similar opportunities against Switzerland and Ukraine next to prove his worth.
