Chelsea board has decided not to punish goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga, for disobeying manager, Maurizio Sarri’s substitution request in the Carabao Cup final defeat to Manchester City on Sunday.
Chelsea lost 4-3 to the Premier League champions, Man City, after 120 minutes of goalless football.
However, late in the second half of extra time, Arizzabalaga went down injured and manager, Maurizio Sarri called on Willy Caballero to replace him.
Arizzabalaga however refused to come off, insisting he was okay.
The incident delayed play for a while, before referee, Jon Moss, confronted Sarri and continued the game.
According to Evening Standard, the Blues are not planning to either fine or punish Kepa for his actions, with a club source saying that the 24-year-old Spain international and Sarri want to put the situation behind them.
