Chelsea Fans Are Discarding Kepa On FIFA Ultimate Team

Kepa Arrizabalaga might just consider retirement when he finds out a number of Chelsea fans have decided to discard his virtual card on FIFA Ultimate Team.

But joking aside, the Spaniard angered many when he refused orders from his manager to be substituted during the League Cup final against Manchester City on Sunday night.

Maurizio Sarri, who was understandably fuming on the touchline, wanted back-up goalkeeper and penalty king Willy Caballero to replace Kepa but the 24-year-old wasn't having any of it.

It was a moment that will live deep in the memory.

Plenty took to social media after the incident, with some even taking to FIFA 19 to discard the goalkeeper on their Ultimate Team.

One Twitter user even recorded the moment he 'quick sold' Arrizabalaga for 600+ coins.

Following on from the match, Sarri said that the whole incident was a "big misunderstanding" in his post match interview:

"I wanted Caballero on the pitch, but the goalkeeper wanted to let me know he was in [a] condition to go to the penalties," he said.

"It was a misunderstanding. Kepa was right, but in the wrong way he conducted himself.

"I thought Kepa was unable to go to penalties. I wanted Caballero on the pitch because I was afraid of his cramp, but the doctor explained it wasn't [a] cramp."

That didn't stop some FIFA players from getting rid on Ultimate Team, though:

Do you think Kepa should be punished for his actions in the League Cup final?
