Sinclair addresses Kepa – Lampard crises


Chelsea former defender, Frank Sinclair says he understands Lampard’s recent axe on Kepa.

Kepa Arrizabalaga joined the Blues two seasons ago, and has conceded more than 80 goals so far, and this statistics worries Lampard as he is on the lookout for a replacement. The Spaniard was rested for Chelsea’s last EPL game of the season, and was also snubbed in the FA Cup loss against Arsenal, as Sinclair says no one can blame Frankie for trying to bring in an urgent replacement.

“It’s not a secret that Frank lost this trust in Kepa, However, you have to remember that he’s a really young goalkeeper, the £71m price tag shadows the fact that he’s a young goalkeeper, fairly inexperienced in playing senior football and the standards are set very high for him. At the same time, if you get the opportunity to bring in Jan Oblak then I think if you want to compete with Liverpool and Manchester City, Chelsea need a goalkeeper of the same standard and certainly Jan Oblak would produce that” Frank Sinclair.
