£180k-a-week star to revive his career at Chelsea after £16M arrival
Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has the chance to become number one under Graham Potter, the fans have been told
After a bright start to the new season – Chelsea made the massive decision to hand Potter the chance to manage the club – a switch that has shocked many in the game
There is no doubt that he is one of the highest rated managers in the game – and there is no doubt that many top clubs have been keeping a very close eye on him over the past few seasons – but no-one could believe the move that he has made this season
However – his arrival to the club will mean that players that have been pushed to one side now have the opportunity to push for a starting spot – stars like Kepa
Since being dropped from the side at the beginning of the 2020-2021 campaign, Kepa has been forced to watch from the bench as Edouard Mendy has gone from strength to strength between the sticks.
There has been alot of speculation about his future – with many reports suggesting that he was looking for a way out in the summer – before the Blues made the decision to keep hold
But Mendy has had a relatively poor start to the season – and according to Journalist Simon Phillips – Kepa now has the chance to impress Potter and possibly become the number one at the club
What has he said?
Phillips told GIVEMESPORT: “He’s definitely got a chance, purely because historically, he’s supposed to be a lot better on the ball than Mendy and he is, but neither of them are claiming that spot, neither of them are really playing that well at the moment.”
Nobody has ever doubted the quality of Kepa – he really is a talented stopper – this is his chance to shine and make an impression
However – Mendy is one of the best in world football and keeping him on the bench would be a massive mistake
