Chelsea news: Frank Lampard makes Kepa Arrizabalaga decision ahead of Man Utd clash | Football | Sport
“Sometimes I make decisions that they don’t like. That is brutal reality of football.
“You have to be always aware that if your standards drop or if the manager chooses differently, that can happen.
“You handle it in the right way. That is the reality of life, of football.”
Former Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood recently suggested that the Chelsea hierarchy will have been questioning Lampard’s decision to drop Arrizabalaga, though insisted he agrees with the 41-year-old coach’s decision-making.
“The pressure’s more on Frank Lampard [than Caballero] because the hierarchy are looking and saying ‘Oh okay, richest goalkeeper in the world and you’re going to decide to drop him’,” Sherwood said on Premier League Productions show The Weekend Review.
“I think he made the correct decision, I am not having Kepa [from] the first time he told [Maurizio] Sarri last year at Wembley he’s not coming off when he put his number up. I cannot have the kid’s attitude.
