Peter Crouch Gives His Verdict On Tuchel Dropping Mendy For Kepa In The FA Cup Final
Peter Crouch has revealed who he would have picked between Kepa and Mendy in the FA Cup final if he was Chelsea manager.
On whether he’d have dropped Mendy against Leicester in the FA Cup final, the former striker Peter Crouch wrote on his Daily Mail column: “Not a chance. I couldn’t care less how unpopular it would have made me, I would have gone with my strongest available team and then you cannot have any room for doubt.
“But I would also say this as a former player: it would have been unbelievably harsh to drop Kepa after he had played all the rounds before the final,” Peter Crouch added.
