John Terry Blast Chelsea Goalkeeper Kepa For Snubbing Substitution

Former Chelsea captain, John Terry, has lashed out at goalkeeper Kepa Arizzabalaga, for refusing to come off during the club’s defeat to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final.

The Blues lost 4-3 to the Premier League champions, after 120 minutes of goalless football.

Late in the second half of extra time, goalkeeper Kepa Arizzabalaga went down injured and Sarri called on Willy Caballero to replace him.

Arizzabalaga refused to come off, insisting he was okay.

The incident delayed play for a while, before referee Jon Moss confronted Sarri and continued the game.

“Once the number goes up, you have to come off.

“You need to show him respect. I know he doesn’t want to.

“I get his frustration but you deal with it. This is the last thing the players want. He’s just brought a hell of a lot of pressure on himself.

“[This is] certainly not the end of it. It’s a cloud over a good Chelsea performance.

“That’s taken away the shine of a good performance. We will have to wait and see what happens,” Terry said on Sky Sports.
