According to Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is the basis for the bizarre time with Kepa Arrizabalaga in the League Cup final on a misunderstanding. The Italian wanted to be the goalkeeper in the extension exchange, but the goalkeeper refused to leave the field.
“It was a huge misunderstanding,” said Sarri Sunday after the end of the contest. “I understood that he had cramp and that he was not able to get into the penalty shoot-out in action. But he apparently had no cramping.”
In the final phase of the renewal it seemed that Arrizabalaga had cramp. When Sarri reservedoelman Willy Caballero wanted to bring them in, continued the Spaniard, however, on the field. The coach stormed then furious to the tunnel.
“I had to be calmed,” he declared. “He understood that I for a change had been requested because of his physical problems, but he indicated that there was nothing going on. There he was right in.”
Chelsea lost the League Cup final, eventually, after penalty kicks, after 120 minutes no goals, fell on Wembley. Arrizabalaga turned in the penaltyserie only the bet of Leroy Sané.
