Chelsea will reportedly not punish Kepa Arrizabalaga for disobeying manager Maurizio Sarri during Sunday’s EFL Cup Final defeat to Manchester City.
Kepa refused to be substituted before the penalty shootout at Wembley Stadium, which Chelsea lost 4-3 and saw Sarri storm down the tunnel.
However, The Sun writes the goalkeeper ‘will not be punished’ as the Blues have deemed the incident a ‘misunderstanding’.
Furthermore, the newspaper expects the Spaniard to keep his place in goal for his side’s upcoming Premier League clash with Tottenham Hotspur.
The former Athletic Bilbao man became the world’s most expensive shot-stopper when Chelsea signed him for €80m last summer.
