Caballero says Kepa should stay with Chelsea

Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero says Kepa Arrizabalaga should stay next season.

The 38-year-old is expected to take Arrizabalaga's place in Chelsea's goal in their FA Cup final clash with Arsenal on Saturday.

Caballero though wants the former Athletic Bilbao man to stay. He said: “Of course I hope he stays.

“I have known him for two years. Last season was very good for him. This season there were some other things happening, but last year was fantastic. He is still the no1 goalkeeper for Spain, and is a great goalkeeper."

Argentine Caballero added: “We have a great relationship - first of all because we speak the same language.

“We work together well in training. It was the second time that Frank left him out, but in terms of our relationship he has been very good.

“He has been behind me, helped me with everything in the games that I have played.

“That's all I can say about Kepa. He has shown me and all of us a great face, even in the worst moments for him. That is so professional from him.

“The way that he worked during those weeks and in the last week, he was excellent."
