Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri says he does not want “to kill” goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, but has not yet decided if the Spaniard will start against Tottenham on Wednesday.
The 24-year-old has apologised and was fined a week’s wages for refusing to be substituted during Sunday’s Carabao Cup final defeat by Manchester City.
“I have to decide [if he will play], maybe yes, maybe not,” Sarri said.
“He made a really big mistake. For me it’s finished.”
The Italian added:
“I spoke with Kepa. Then we spoke altogether, because he said sorry to the technical staff, but it was not enough.
“Then he said sorry to his team-mates, to the club. I think he made a big mistake, but we need to be [bigger]. We don’t want to kill him.”
