Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has openly revealed his new life at Stamford Bridge following his summer move from Athletic Bilbao.
The 24-year-old has now become the world’s most expensive goalkeeper as the Blues spent £72m for the Spain international.
Kepa has played eight Premier League matches with Chelsea and has managed four clean sheets with his side are still unbeaten so far.
Speaking about his early experiences in west London, the Spaniard revealed the difference between La Liga and Premier League.
“The Premier League and La Liga are very different,” Kepa said.
“The style of play is different, the person training me is different, everything is different and new.”
“But all in all, so far I feel very happy. I think I’m adapting very well to being in the team, which is the most important thing, and I’m really looking forward to spending a long time in the Premier League with Chelsea.”
“You need a little time, the usual sort of time it takes to get to know your team-mates and the league itself, but it’s all good generally, I’m very happy.”
Kepa, who took over from current Real Madrid star Thibaut Courtois in the summer, has also explained the reason behind his Chelsea move.
“Leaving your environment, and the place where you have grown up, is always going to be difficult,” the shot-stopper added.
“But I felt moving to Chelsea was an important step in my career so that’s why I wanted to do it, but of course I will always be grateful to Athletic Bilbao for all the years I spent with them, and for all, they’ve given me.”
