Thomas Tuchel surprisingly reveals one player who should be honest with the club

Thomas Tuchel has honestly delivered his verdict concerning his second goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga. The 48 years old has said that the Spaniard should be honest with the club on his career at the Stamford Bridge.

Kepa Arrizabalaga has not been on a fine form since making a big money move from the Spanish club, Atletico Bilbao for a fee of around £72 million. He conceded many goals during Lampard tenure as Chelsea manager leading to the club to find another top class goalkeeper.

Ever since the arrival of the Senegalese shotshopper, Kepa has been sidelined for most of the time coming as a second goalkeeper at the club. The 26 years old has a contract which runs until 2023 and his coach Thomas Tuchel has honestly reveals that the Spanish goalkeeper is abit disappointed at the club and that he should be honest with his future to the club.

"We need to ask him, and we need to be honest with him. And he needs to be honest with us, this is the most important."

"He is still our player, and we don't know about the situation with the ownership, what is possible and what is not."

"So first of all, he is our player, and he is a fantastic guy to deal with this kind of situation, which is not easy for him."

Thomas Tuchel has been using Kepa in FA cup games but Edouard Mendy has again taken his spot. It's set to be seen whether Arrizabalaga will sign a new contract at the club or will search for minutes in another club. Clubs like Newcastle United have been showing an interest in signing Kepa.
