Chelsea’s Kepa Arrizabalaga has been fined one week’s wages by the club after apparently refusing to be substituted against Man City in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday.

He issued a statement late on Monday night alongside comments from manager Maurizio Sarri, who had earlier claimed the incident was just a “misunderstanding”.


After also leaving colleague Willy Caballero looking very disappointed by his actions, the goalkeeper said:

Although there was a misunderstanding, on reflection, I made a big mistake with how I handled the situation.

I wanted to take the time today to apologise fully and in person to the coach, to Willy, my team-mates and to the club.
