Former Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri and Kepa Arrizabalaga are being trolled by the Chelsea fans after the official Chelsea FC Twitter account paid tribute to his first season at the Cobham.

“It’s been a debut season to remember for @kepa_46!,” the club said.

Many fun loving Chelsea fans didn’t miss the opportunity to point out that Chelsea goalkeeper had refused to leave after Sarri had substituted him during the final minutes of extra time in the Carabao Cup.

Here is a video of the incident in case some of our fans want to revisit the moment.

Fans didn’t look in the forgiving mood though, as they took the opportunity to make fun of both Kepa Arrizabalaga and Maurizio Sarri by proclaiming Kepa as their actual manager.

It is a point to be noted that Sarri, who left on his own accord after Juventus came looking for him, is no longer in Chelsea’s plans; however, Kepa stays even after doing such thing.

“My manager,” one Chelsea fan responded to the tweet.

A second fan added: “Another Chelsea manager that won a trophy in his first season.”

Another said: “Announce Kepa as player-manager right now!”

“Gaffer had a good season,” praised one user.

Another tweeter said that Kepa was “One of the best managers.”

“Considering he became manager halfway through, of course, it’s a season to remember,” said another fan.

“Nice goalkeeper and manager,” responded another Twitter user. “Good business for Chelsea.”

Kepa, however, had said sorry for the bust up and both parties involved had brushed the issue aside by claiming it as a misunderstanding.

To his credit though, Kepa has been very instrumental in our Europa League campaign and has been phenomenal at times for Chelsea Football Club.
