Last night’s Carabao Cup Final between Chelsea and Manchester City had one of the most dramatic events of the season. With the match nearing penalties, Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri was about to bring on Willy Caballero for Kepa. However, Kepa was adamant and decided to stay on the pitch which angered Sarri.
Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport has explained what happened inside the Chelsea dressing room following the match. The newspaper wrote,”Everybody was waiting for Kepa to arrive in the mixed zone of Wembley but before he came off an English journalist who knows Spanish very well walked inside the Blues’ dressing room to decide the goalkeeper’s version to give to journalists. ”
Kepa then told that the incident was a misunderstanding. The newspaper added, “Is anybody going to believe it?”
Chelsea next play Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.
