PREMIER - Chelsea hero goalie Kepa: "I tried to be ready"
Entering the game, as a substitute after Edouard Mendy, and granting Chelsea the victory of European Supercup 2021, by saving the penalty kicked by Villarreal backliner Raùl Albiol, Spanish goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, who turned out being the hero of the day indeed, commented upon the game, as reported by BT:
"This is not a usual situation. Edouard and the rest of the team did a fantastic job. It was a tough game, against a very tough team. But we eventually made it, and now we have got the medal. Penalty kicks? I'm not used to such a situation, but I was ready, because I knew it could happen. I tried to be ready both physically and mentally".
