Sarri was furious when Kepa refused to be substituted after needing treatment in the closing stages of extra-time against Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday.
Chelsea eventually lost 4-3 on penalties after a goalless draw, but it was Kepa's rebellious behaviour and Sarri's raging response on the touchline that stole the headlines.
However, speaking after the match, Sarri appeared to back-track as he suggested it was a communication issue that caused the problem.
"In that situation there was a big misunderstanding," Sarri said.
"At no time has it been my intention to disobey the coach or any of his decisions," Kepa wrote in a statement issued on his Twitter feed.

Fans though were split in their reaction to the unbelievable scenes but pundits and former players were unanimous in their outrage towards the goalkeeper with some calling for him to never play for The Blues again.
