Chelsea’s Kepa fined a Week’s Wages for Substitution Fiasco

Chelsea have fined Kepa Arrizabalaga one week’s wages for refusing to be substituted during the Carabao Cup final defeat to Manchester City.

The Spanish goalkeeper went to ground with an apparent injury in the closing moments of extra time, prompting manager Maurizio Sarri to ready penalty specialist Willy Caballero to enter for the impending shoot-out.

A messy cross-field exchange ensued as Kepa argued with Sarri – who had to remain on the touchline – over his ability to remain in the game.

Chelsea would go on to lose the shootout, with Kepa letting a tame penalty run underneath him to contribute to the defeat.
