Petr Cech Applauds Kepa Arrizabalaga form and commitment when called to replace Edouard Mendy in goal.
The 27-year-old who has predominantly mislaid his starting berth after the signing of Eduard Mendy , he has been reinstated while the Senegalese is on duty for the National Team at the Africa Cup of Nations.
Petr Cech delineates Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga as “brilliant” for his effect on goal recently.
The Spanish has been convinced and positive in goal with great form and attitude. Racks-up three clean sheets against Tottenham in the Cup and League Matches.
The designation of Thomas Tuchel as Manager spurs Kepa’s morale and confidence. Six clean sheets from Eleven appearances this Season is not a substandard for a second choice goal keeper.
Chelsea’s technical adviser Cech, expressed admiration for Kepa
“He had to fill those big boots while Edouard has been away, and he has been brilliant in all those games under even more scrutiny than usual. You need a strong team and every person ready to help. The goalkeeping group work so hard together to make sure they are all ready for when the moment comes, so Kepa deserves credit too,” Cech wrote.
Kepa Arrizabalaga has always made valiant effort when called upon but sadly Eduard Mendy has replaced him as our perpetual starter.
As the summer approaches, it will be engrossing to discern where the Spanish shot stopper future lies.
He is competent to play at top level for many big teams across Europe.
