What Maurizio Sarri shouted at Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa in dressing room row after Carabao Cup final

Maurizio Sarri was always planning to take Kepa Arrizabalaga off for the Carabao Cup final penalty shootout and yelled at the Chelsea goalkeeper in the dressing room after the defeat, reports say Kepa defied Sarri in last weekend's Carabao Cup final against Manchester City, refusing to be substituted in the dying minutes of extra-time despite struggling with cramp Second-choice goalkeeper Willy Caballero had stripped out of his training kit and was waiting to come on when Kepa angrily gestured towards the bench and insisted he would be staying on Kepa subsequently saved just one of City's five penalties as Pep Guardiola's side lifted the Carabao Cup for a second successive season Sarri described the incident as a 'misunderstanding' afterwards but the Daily Mirror say he had always planned to change keepers in the event of a penalty shootout It is claimed the Italian viewed Caballero as the best option because of his impressive record in saving penalties and his links with Manchester City Kepa, though, was out of the loop and therefore refused to be substituted off as he believed he was fit enough to continue Sarri was furious at the time and the Mirror claim a row ensued in the dressing room after the game in which the Chelsea manager shouted at Kepa and said: 'How could you do this?' Kepa was dropped from Chelsea's starting XI for Wednesday's victory over Tottenham but looks set to return to the team on Sunday when the Blues face Fulham Speaking about £ 72million summer signing Kepa on Friday, Sarri said: 'As I said in the press conference after the match, the Kepa situation is closed 'Kepa is our first goalkeeper, but we are very happy for Willy that he can play in a very difficult match Kepa will be on the pitch for one of the next two matches ' Kepa has been widely condemned for defying his manager and David Seaman, the former Arsenal and England goalkeeper, says the Spaniard was in the wrong

I do not think anybody in football has seen anything like that, 'he said 'I thought he was disrespectful not only to his manager but his fellow goalkeeper in Caballero 'He should not have been out there on the pitch wagging his finger; he should've gone over to the bench to explain himself because there was a miscommunication from the physios back to the bench 'Caballero was not just warming up, he has his gloves on and was ready to go so a signal's gone back saying he can not carry on 'Kepa's obviously not understood that and thinks he's okay, but then he realises he's being taken off so he should've just gone over and then that would've stopped everything, but that did not happen Get Chelsea latest news updates directly to your inbox Subscribe Thank you for subscribing
