Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has vowed to fight for his starting place in the Chelsea team. Kepa has been demoted to the bench after a series of underwhelming performances dating back to last season.
The Spanish stopper speaking at a press conference reassured fans that he remains dedicated to the team and is determined to keep training at a top level in order to regain his starting berth.
“That’s a question for [Frank Lampard], not for me. They’re his words [about my performances at Chelsea]. Every manager has their own way of communicating or acting in a press conference. I can’t give my opinion on what anyone thinks or says. I do feel confidence from the club and I do feel confidence from the national team. As I said before, I’m in two world-class teams with great managers.
“And I’m just focusing on the next game for each team and trying to help from my position, whatever that is. “I feel good, I feel strong and confident. It’s true I’m not in a dream situation or one I expected, but sometimes you go through these times in your career. I’m working and I’m calm. I’m confident I can turn the situation around, work hard, and when I have the chance to play, try to do my best.”
Kepa lost his place after falling out with Frank Lampard due to poor form.
