Lampard reveals what he wants from Kepa Arrizabalaga

Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has struggled for consistency this season, with reports claiming Chelsea boss Frank Lampard wants to replace the Spaniard.

Lampard has revealed what he expects from Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Lampard said: “I think clearly you want them to be talented to keep balls out of the net; it is old school but it’s the first and foremost job in what a goalkeeper should keep closest to their heart.

“The idea of clean sheets, it’s not always culpable on them, of course. For a keeper to have a real desire and talent to produce that.

“But in the modern-day, they are even more involved than ever. To use their feet, to be a personality… an all-round ability that you see with the top-level goalkeepers in the world.

“We were fortunate to see at Chelsea that we had ones we can certainly say were part of huge eras for the club.

“That has to be Kepa’s desire, to be that person for this club and be a goalkeeper in his own right to say that he’s a huge part of a successful team.

“It’s not just on Kepa of course, but in his own way that is what he has to believe and work towards.”
