Chelsea fine Kepa Arrizabalaga a week’s wages


Chelsea have fined goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga a week’s wages after his bust-up with Maurizio Sarri at Wembley.

The Spaniard and his Italian boss held talks today over the ‘keeper’s public display of defiance towards the end of extra-time in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday, which the Blues lost to Manchester City on penalties.

Sarri was left raging on the touchline after Kepa defied his attempts to substitute him for Willy Caballero ahead of the penalty shootout.

Both men brushed it off as a misunderstanding at full-time but Kepa has personally apologised to Sarri, his team-mates and the club in full acknowledgement he made “a big mistake”.
