LONDON – "It was a great misunderstanding". Maurizio Sarri tries to quell the controversy after that during the challenge lost on penalties against Manchester City in the League Cup final, goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga refused to change with Caballero sending the Blues coach on a rampage.
"I did not understand the problem until the doctor was back on the bench – says the Chelsea coach, quoted by the British broadcaster Sky Sports -. It was a great misunderstanding because I was convinced that Kepa had physical problems, cramps, and was unable to continue on penalties. Instead he could still parry. "

Then Sarri explains the moment when he gave the impression of wanting to leave the camp: "I needed to get calm again. Kepa understood that I wanted to replace him for a physical problem and he said he did not have any, and he was right. I spoke with Kepa but only to clarify. I understood the situation ".
