World’s most expensive goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has revealed how he is adapting well to life under Maurizio Sarri and the Premier League, this is according to reports.
Following the forceful departure of Thibaut Courtois, Chelsea were left without an option than to sign a top-notch replacement for him. They Blues had had their sight on Arrizabalaga, they were left with no choice than to pay his bogus €80 million / £71.6 million release clause.
So far, the 24-year-old Spaniard is giving a good account of himself as the Blues are yet to lose a match and they have conceded only five goals in eight games.
He is yet to hit his peak but he has shown glimpses of quality and it is generally believed that he would eventually come good for Chelsea.
The Spanish netminder has revealed how he is adapting to life in the Premier League.
“Leaving your environment, and the place where you have grown up, is always going to be difficult.
“But I felt moving to Chelsea was an important step in my career so that’s why I wanted to do it, but of course I will always be grateful to Athletic Bilbao for all the years I spent with them, and for all they’ve given me.
“The Premier League and La Liga are very different. The style of play is different, the person training me is different, everything is different and new. “But all in all, so far I feel very happy.
“I think I’m adapting very well to being in the team, which is the most important thing, and I’m really looking forward to spending a long time in the Premier League with Chelsea.”
Chelsea will take on Manchester United after the international break and Kepa will be hoping to avoid his first defeat.
