Chelsea goalkeeper, Arrizabalaga sends strong message to David de Gea


Chelsea goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga has said that he is ready to battle Manchester United keeper, David de Gea for the No.1 jersey with the Spain national team.

Arrizabalaga became the most expensive goalkeeper in history when he moved to Stamford Bridge in a £71.6million deal from Athletic Bilbao in the summer, replacing Thibaut Courtois, who joined Real Madrid.

The 23-year-old was part of Spain’s squad at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, where De Gea struggled for form.

“It is a question for the coach,” Kepa told AS when asked about competing with De Gea for the No.1 jersey.

“What I will do is work, although it is clear we all want to play.

“The coach will decide what is best for the team, and in training, I will try to work hard.”

Asked about the criticism De Gea has received, Kepa continued: “I try to separate myself from that. We wanted to get as far as possible in the World Cup and it did not work out like that. With De Gea we have a goalkeeper who perfectly covers the goal.

“I do not pay attention to the polls or what people say, I try to isolate myself and focus on myself.

“The coach will decide his selection on what is best for the team – he makes the final decision and will accept whatever it is, always in good harmony.”

Arrizabalaga has been called up for the international games against England and Croatia in the UEFA Nations League by Spain coach, Luis Enrique.
