‘I’m Surprised Sarri Didn’t Force Kepa To Come Off’

Following the incredible scenes towards the end of the Carabao Cup final on Sunday, former captain John Terry weighed in with his thoughts.

With the final heading towards a penalty shootout and goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga having received treatment, coach Maurizio Sarri called for the Spaniard to be substituted, only for the former Athletic Club man to refuse.

Club legend Terry had sympathy for the coach and believes Kepa should have been forced off.

“It left Sarri in a tough situation. I was surprised he didn’t force him (Kepa) to come off,” Terry told Sky Sports.

“It will be interesting how it pans out in the next 24 hours for the club.

“If I was in there, I’d be expecting the manager to come in and deal with it instantly,” Terry stated.

Chelsea went on to lose 4-3 on penalties to Manchester City, with Kepa saving one spot kick from Leroy Sane.
