Kepa Arrizabalaga: Chelsea goalkeeper fined & apologises for Wembley incident


Chelsea signed Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao for a club record £71m in August 2018

Goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has been fined a week’s wages and apologised for refusing to be substituted during Chelsea’s Carabao Cup final defeat by Manchester City on Sunday.

The Spaniard refused to be replaced by Willy Caballero at Wembley.

“Although there was a misunderstanding, on reflection, I made a big mistake with how I handled the situation,” Kepa said in a Chelsea statement.
