The Fiver didn’t get where it is today without toeing the company line. If The Man says “jump”, we ask how high. If The Man says “thump”, we ask how hard. And if The Man says “scrump”, we’ll make for the nearest orchard and steal every apple in sight. If attempting to ingratiate yourself with the boss through general obsequiousness, kow-towing and forelock-tugging were Olympic sports, The Fiver would be a fixture on the top step of the podium dedicating our victory to the gaffer. It seems that Kepa Arrizabalaga isn’t cut from quite the same cloth and when the Chelsea goalkeeper was substituted by Maurizio Sarri shortly before the end of Sunday’s Worthington Cup final, he brazenly refused to leave the field. As his manager Maurizio Sarri ranted, raved, kicked water bottles, gesticulated wildly and briefly threatened to storm out of the arena in a volcanic funk, Kepa stood his ground in a scarcely credible act of insubordination that would earn most workplace drones the sack for gross misconduct.
