Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has dismissed the reports that some tabloids have put forth regarding Kepa Arrizabalaga and the Spaniard leaving the club in the summer.
Having arrived to Stamford Bridge in 2018 as the world’s most expensive goalkeeper, Kepa has lost his place between the posts to veteran Willy Caballero. The 38-year-old is likely to continue his starting spell when Chelsea face Bournemouth today (Saturday), but speaking to the press ahead of the game, Lampard was adamant that Kepa’s future is still some way from being decided.
The former England midfielder made it clear that Kepa still has a chance of regaining his place in the team, and pointed out that the situation is the same with any player – though one individual cannot be expected to influence the collective result, each individual performance plays a part in the manager’s plans for that player’s future.
Lampard called the reports suggesting the 25-year-old was about to leave ‘false articles, probably guessing on players”.
