Real Madrid: Kepa also bids farewell and will have minutes against Betis

Toni Kroos’ will be the only tribute taking place on Saturday night at the Santiago Bernabéu. The match between Real Madrid and Betis will be emotionally charged for many players. One of them will be Kepa. The goalkeeper has fulfilled a dream throughout the season by wearing the Real Madrid crest on his chest. Years ago, he was left behind due to circumstances beyond his control, but in August of last year, football gave him the opportunity to fulfill his desire, and overnight, he showed up at Valdebebas to become a Real Madrid player.

From day one, he was one of the team and fought for the team’s common cause of success. Whether he played or was on the bench mattered little; his work was always there, and it has been recognized by both the coaching staff and teammates, as well as the club itself. Carlo Ancelotti has decided that he deserved a farewell fitting for what he has done for the team, and for that reason, he will have minutes in what will be the last league match of the current season.

It’s not common for a goalkeeper to have minutes during a match without being a starter, but Kepa’s involvement deserves the gesture that Ancelotti will have with him. With the Champions League final still pending, the goalkeeper will end his time at Real Madrid, bidding farewell to the pitch and receiving the affection of the Madridista fans.

Kepa has to return to Chelsea, as he has one year left on his contract. Everything indicates that his future does not lie with the London team, but it is possible that he will continue in the Premier League. There are several teams interested in signing him, but what seems clear is that his next destination will be to return to Stamford Bridge and consider options.
