Thomas Tuchel completely trust in goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga

Football News

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has insisted that he has complete trust in goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, who he believes will prove himself as a top shot-stopper again.

In an abysmal 2019/20 season, in which Kepa posted a historically low save percentage, then-manager Frank Lampard campaigned for the signing of new goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, who has impressed since his £ 22m transfer from Rennes.

Mendy was the go-to goalkeeper for Tuchel, but the boss revealed that Kepa would be given a chance to prove himself with an appearance in Thursday’s FA Cup fifth-round tie with Barnsley.

“He’s going to play [against Barnsley],” Tuchel told The Telegraph.

“We had a view of his condition from the outside, of course, and some problems on the sporting side. Perhaps, even, his transition circumstances are a little bit on his shoulders. That was the feeling from outside, from far away. What’s nice for him is that we’re starting new stuff, that this is a new beginning for him, and I don’t have a past with him, and I hope there won’t be any problems, and I don’t see them coming. I believe today that he will turn things around.”
