Chelsea: These Blues fans react to Lampard’s Kepa comments

Chelsea: These Blues fans react to Lampard’s Kepa comments - Chelsea

Frank Lampard has issued a public ultimatum to Kepa Arrizabalaga which has got plenty of Chelsea fans talking on Twitter. 

The Chelsea boss has told the Spaniard that his Euro 2020 dreams are not the team’s problem, via The Daily Express. Indeed, Kepa is reportedly worrying about his spot in the Spanish national team after being dropped to the bench by the Blues legend.

Speaking to reporters, Lampard dismissed Kepa’s concern and said: “I understand all my international players have ambitions but the rules remain the same.”

“I hope all the players remain positive and of course he can play for his country. He’s shown that already, he’s been number one at times ahead of David De Gea so hopefully it isn’t a big issue at the moment.”

The Spanish international has found himself below former Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero in the pecking order in recent weeks after struggling to find his form.

According to the Premier League official website, the 25-year-old has made 24 appearances this season, conceding 32 goals and kept only 5 clean sheets. Kepa is the most expensive goalkeeper in the world, having joined the Blues from Athletic Bilbao for a whopping £71.6m in 2018 (via the Guardian).

Lampard’s side are currently in a close race for the top four with coveted Champions League football in their sights.

As expected lots of fans are predicting Chelsea’s lineup against Liverpool in the FA Cup, with some calling for the Spaniard to be reinstated:
