Mendy left the field promptly and without complaint – unlike Arrizabalaga, who seemingly refused to be substituted in a similar situation in a Carabao Cup final in 2019 – and was happy to see his colleague save twice to secure the Super Cup.

“We work for this success,” Mendy told chelsea official site

“I knew since last season that if Kepa came on the pitch he would help the team as he did.

I am happy for Kepa.

“This is teamwork, it’s a team effort. When you play for Chelsea you play for success, you play for titles.

We did it together and we are happy.”

Arrizabalaga was full of praise for Mendy, who had made several key saves to keep out Villarreal
