After starting Chelsea’s last two games against Barnsley in the FA Cup and Newcastle United in the Premier League, Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has told Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel that he wants to feel important at Chelsea.
“I have never thought about leaving Chelsea,” Kepa told COPE.
“In my very good [first] season we won the Europa League, qualified for the Champions League, and I was playing for the National Team. The second year we changed coaches.
“With Lampard there had been no problem [though] I haven’t given my best version [and] it is true that I have not played how I wanted to play.
“I have no problem with it [but] I want to turn it around. Start playing a bit. I want to be here, feel better and look to the future.
“I’m not getting carried away [with the back-to-back starts] but they felt good after inactivity. I hope soon I can play more.
“What I want is to feel important at Chelsea, get back in goal and enjoy myself. In my own mid, I believe I can do it. I’m not afraid. I want to feel more important and work for it. What will happen, we’ll see.”
