Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has warned Chelsea fans that new £72million goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is not yet the finished article.
Sarri insists Kepa will need time to get to the level of former Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.
“Not at the moment, for sure,” said Sarri.
“But he’s very young, 23. So I hope he can improve very fast. But, for the moment, he’s not Courtois, of course.
“I am happy because the Courtois situation was clear. He wanted to go to Madrid. So we lost maybe one of the most important goalkeepers in the world now.
“But we bought a young goalkeeper, I think one of the most important among young goalkeepers in Europe, so I’m really happy.”
