Chelsea chief Cech fully behind Kepa staying

Chelsea technical adviser Petr Cech is fighting the corner of Kepa Arrizabalaga.

While the Spain No1 has been pilloried by both fans and pundits in England this season, he retains the full support of Cech.

The Chelsea great rates the potential of Kepa highly and believes he will eventually grow into being a top class goalkeeper, reports Mundo Deportivo.

Kepa is being linked with a return to the LaLiga, where Valencia and Atletico Madrid are keen.

However Cech's opinion is that Chelsea just need to be patient and give Kepa the time to develop.
