Football fans can now appoint Kepa Arrizabalaga as a manager on FIFA 20

Fulham FC v Chelsea FC - Premier League

Kepa Arrizabalaga will never live down the 2019 Carabao Cup final.

Sure, Chelsea fans have long forgiven his decision to ignore Maurizio Sarri, instead deciding to remain on the pitch and partake in a penalty shootout they lost to Manchester City.

That doesn't mean that football fans haven't enjoyed plenty of jokes at his expense, though, and suggestions that Arrizabalaga wants to manage Chelsea will never get old.

It adds further punishment to the fine and one-game benching that Arrizabalaga received for the incident and now an amusing development has made it a topic of discussion once again.

Enter FIFA 20. The new game from EA Sports appears to offer more changes than ever before and is allowing a degree of customisation that has gamers incredibly excited.

FIFA 20 Beta news

The release of the Beta version of the game has given football fans insights like Juventus', or shall we say Piemonte Calcio's, brand new badge and kits.

That, and the fact that Pro Clubs players can now be customised to the point of having rainbow-coloured beards, wooly hats and even hilarious running types.

However, back to Kepa and we have the fact that contemporary players can now become managers in career mode, presumably when they decide to hang up their boots.


Kepa can become a manager

Screenshots have seen hilarious examples such as Lionel Messi managing Newcastle, Phil Jones at the helm for Lille and Cristiano Ronaldo pulling the strings at Sampdoria.

You can see where we're going with this, because plenty of fans inevitably made the point that Arrizabalaga could therefore become a manager in the game.

And at long last, screenshots have emerged of Arrizabalaga doing just that, with one particular gamer appointing him as Juventus manager. Check out the images below:

What an incredible sight.

Obviously, it would have been even better if we saw Arrizabalaga holding the reins at Chelsea, but allowing him to replace Maurizio Sarri at Juventus is the next best thing.

Of course, it would be ideal if Arrizabalaga could be installed as player-manager, just in case Juventus need him to replace Wojciech Szczesny for an important penalty shootout.

Whether or not this feature will be included in the final game remains to be seen, but it appears unlikely with the final release now just over a month away.

If that is the case, however, we can't wait to see Arrizabalaga running along the Stamford Bridge touchline with the Premier League trophy in a full Chelsea tracksuit.

It would certainly open up gamers to create some hilarious scenarios and offer the level of customisation that could see an increase in usage for career mode.
