According to Sky Sports reports, Lampard put Kepa on the bench in the game against West Brom last weekend. When it comes to criticism of Kepa from the outside world, Lampard believes that these remarks are too unfair for Kepa.
Last week, Chelsea signed new goalkeeper Edward Mendy from Rennes, and there is speculation that Kepa may leave the team. Lampard said: "You all think Kepa's career at Chelsea is over. I don't agree with that."
"I know it's very difficult for Kepa at this stage, and he knows this. But we can't just say that he will leave the team because of this."
"And we should also understand that he is still young, and many of the outsiders' evaluations of him are unfair. And I must protect him, because I know he is a good boy, very professional, and he always wants to do it. the best."
