Not feeling the pressure
Chelsea new boy Kepa Arrizabalaga has claimed that he hopes to adjust to the Premier League as soon as possible following his £71milliom move.
The Spanish youngster was the surprise replacement for Thibaut Courtois after he completed a move to Real Madrid.
What came as an even bigger surprise was the fee that Chelsea had to pay, which came in the form of Kepa’s release clause, supposedly £71 million.
He certainly has some big shoes to fill and Premier League fans will know that it sometimes takes time for goalkeepers to adjust.
While Ederson has taken to the league like a duck to water, David De Gea initially struggled following his move from Atletico Madrid.
‘I hope we will win many, many titles’
Now, Kepa has been speaking about his move and while he understands that there will be time to adapt, he hopes to win titles with Chelsea.
“I am incredibly happy to be here, it’s a great challenge for me and means a lot,” he explained, as quoted by the Daily Mirror.
“It’s a great step forward in my career. I am a player who demands a lot from myself.
“Some players take more time to adapt, some less. I hope I will be able to adjust and adapt as soon as possible.
“I realise the game in England is different, but I have been given fantastic references by other Spanish players in this league.
“Over the next seven years, I expect to achieve a great growth, personally and collectively, and I hope we will win many, many titles.
“A new stage is starting for me, and I am really happy to start this new stage in my career and my life.”
Make yourself at home, @kepa_46!
