David Luiz refused to leave the pitch after being subbed for PSG v Marseille in 2016

David Luiz tried to convince Kepa to leave the pitch in the Carabao Cup final

Kepa Arrizabalaga managed to turn what was one of the dullest Carabao Cup final in recent history to a memorable one.

Chelsea and Manchester City cancelled each other out throughout the 120 minutes with either side unable to find the back of the net.

With the game heading towards penalties, it suddenly burst into life as Kepa defied Maurizio Sarri and refused to leave the field.

The incident went on for a good few minutes, with Kepa eventually winning the battle of wills.

The only Chelsea player that went over to Kepa to try and convince him to leave the field was David Luiz.

Luiz revealed after the game he told Kepa to respect Sarri's decision.

"I just said to him we have to respect the decision of the coach," he told Sky Sports.

"But, I don't know if the coach wanted to change him because he was feeling pain or it was his [tactical] decision.

"I think the coach he wished to do the substitution because [he was not sure] of the injury, he didn't understand that.

"[Kepa] was telling us he was good. He was okay. The game sometimes you don't have much time to explain things, it's okay."

While Luiz gave his teammate good advice, he himself was guilty of disrespecting his manager at Paris Saint-Germain.

In a match between Marseille and PSG in 2016, Laurent Blanc wanted to sub Luiz off after he went down with an injury.

But the Brazilian refused and got his way in similar fashion to Kepa's incident on Sunday.

Again, similarly to Sarri's comments on Sunday, Blanc played down the incident after the game.

"I spoke with him on Monday morning. We had a very good discussion. Not only a good one, but a very long one as well," Blanc said, per Goal.

"It was important to have a chat. We needed to clarify what happened and to speak clearly and sincerely. Our conversation went on for quite a long time.

"It was impossible not to talk about what happened and I am quite pleased with the outcome of our conversation.

"I obviously won't disclose what we discussed, but we needed to have this talk in order to keep having a good relation with him."
