Chelsea manager Frank Lampard, who plays in the English Premier League football, revealed that Petr Cech will start a new acquisition of the London team with Edouard Mendy and error-prone Kepa Arrizabalaga to clear up the team's goalkeeper problems.
Chelsea’s longtime goalkeeper Cech has worked for the London team as an adviser since he ended his playing career in 2019 at Arsenal.
In the future, the 38-year-old Czech responsibility will also extend to practice fields, where he will work as a goalkeeper coach Henrique Hilario.
Lampard emphasized that Cech is not replacing Hilario but will bring his vast experience to help as Kepa’s troubled problems are resolved.
Kepa made bad mistakes in the first two Premier League matches of the season.
Kepa is the most expensive goalkeeper in the world, but after Saturday’s match, he gets Mendyn from Senegal, who Chelsea acquired this week from the French club Rennes.
- Getting Petri to practice as a goalkeeper friend and the experience he brings are a great thing.
He himself is still at a good level, and I think he quit at a pretty young age.
He trains and keeps himself fit, which is good for him and our goalkeepers, Lampard described.
- Petri has her day job, but she also does business with goalkeepers.
Why wouldn’t you take advantage of the world’s best goalkeeper, who he was for a long time, to pass on his information, Lampard continued.
Kepa arrived in Chelsea at the Athletic Bilbao in 2018, but his time at the London Club has been bumpy.
It would come as no surprise that Mendy’s arrival would make him move elsewhere.
When asked, Lampard responded to Kepa's opportunity to relocate with a loan agreement.
- It's not clear yet.
I’m not talking about things that might happen in the future, Lampard said.
- I'll talk to all the goalkeepers.
I am very open and I can see the road to progress.
We know we’ve had problems with the goalkeeper game in the first two games of the season and occasionally last season as well, the manager admitted.
