Chelsea Still Want Kepa To Stay – Cech

Chelsea legend Petr Cech believes Kepa Arrizabalaga can still succeed at Chelsea despite a poor 2019-20 season that has resulted in speculation the Spaniard may be sold.

Kepa was dropped on numerous occasions during the season by Blues boss Frank Lampard, and was benched for Willy Caballero in the FA Cup final defeat against Arsenal with the club eager to sign a new shot-stopper this summer.

Cech – who played 11 years at Chelsea, winning four Premier League titles and a Champions League – understands Kepa failed to perform last campaign but insists the club retains faith he will a top class goalkeeper in the future.

“Kepa struggled last season, that is unquestionable,” Cech – now a technical and performance advisor at Chelsea – told Sport.cz.

“But the club invested in him and gave him a long-term contract because they believe he has the qualities and attributes to be successful.

“Additions will be made to the squad, perhaps even in goal, and this is what is being discussed now.

“But nobody is giving up on Kepa and we all hope he has a great future.”
