Kepa’s Wikipedia page has been locked due to the number of times it’s been edited


Kepa Arrizabalaga is expected to escape without punishment after he refused to be substituted in the Carabao Cup final.

The Spanish goalkeeper defied the orders of his manager, who wanted to bring Willy Caballero on late in extra-time.

But both player and manager insisted that it was a misunderstanding and the Evening Standard report that Chelsea do not plan to discipline Kepa.

That is despite suggestions that the 24-year-old undermined Sarri, who expressed his frustration on the touchline.

It’s a situation that the Blues, who ended up losing the penalty shootout against Manchester City, will want to move on from as soon as possible.

And that may mean keeping Kepa in goal for Wednesday’s Premier League match at home to Tottenham.

Yet, even if that is the case, it’s not going to stop the fans from having some fun.


Kepa's Wikipedia page has been locked

Kepa’s Wikipedia page was edited several times on Sunday evening, with his position being changed to ‘Manager of Chelsea FC’ and his bio reading: “His mum didn’t teach him any manners.”

Alterations were also made to Maurizio Sarri’s Wikipedia entry - he is the “assistant coach to Kepa Arrizabalaga” - and Kepa’s name was added to the list of every manager in Chelsea’s history.

It’s reached the point where Wikipedia have had to lock the former Athletic Bilbao ‘keeper’s Wikipedia page to prevent any more edits being made.

The website has enforced an ‘extended confirmed protection’ until March 10, claiming ‘vandalism’ as its reason for doing so.

The incident will almost certainly prove to be the most memorable moment of Kepa’s debut season in England.

He joined from £71.6 million in August and unfortunately couldn’t redeem himself in the penalty shootout.

After Jorginho and David Luiz both missed from the spot, Raheem Sterling stepped up to secure the first trophy for Man City in what they hope will be a quadruple-winning campaign.
