Kepa Arrizabalaga has ridiculed rumors linking him away from Chelsea saying he still has the faith of manager Frank Lampard.

Speculations regarding the future of Kepa Arrizabalaga at Chelsea have intensified in the last few months.

A string of poor displays in January saw Arrizabalaga get dropped to the bench by Frank Lampard in favor of veteran goalkeeper Willy Caballero.

Arrizabalaga arrived at the Stamford Bridge from Athletic Club in 2018 for a fee of €80 million. But the record-signing has not yet quite lived up to his expectations, often making some costly mistakes.

Chelsea, hence, have been linked with a number of possible replacements in recent times including the likes of Bayern Munich’s Manuel Neuer and Ajax’s Andre Onana.

But the Spaniard, while expressing his desire to win silverware at the club, insists Lampard is confident in his abilities.

“The relationship with Frank is very good. He has shown me confidence from the first moment,” Kepa told Marca.

“He must make decisions, but I feel I have his confidence, both his and that of the whole club. We all like to play in every game.

“It is true that, in the last 10 years, Chelsea is the English team that has won the most titles. And I think we should have that ambition. I want to win everything with Chelsea and with the national team.”
