Despite having played for the likes of Boca Juniors, Malaga FC, and Manchester City during a long career, summer arrival Willy Caballero is still being surprised after 16 years in football.
Talking to the official Chelsea website, the Argentina international reflected on the Blues’ pre-season tour of Asia and commented on some of the surprises that he encountered whilst on tour with his new teammates in the Far East.
The new Chelsea goalkeeper, who arrived from City on a free transfer in July, explained that he had received a warm welcome from all of the Chelsea squad and revealed that it was the first time he had ever taken part in a training session overseen by an Italian manager.
In particular, the 35-year-old spoke about his Chelsea initiation and revealed that it was the first time that he’d been asked to perform a song after arriving at a new club.
“Pre-season was good and it was what I was expecting, but it was a surprise for me to have to sing! That was a very good night but it was a little bit stressful because I wasn’t expecting something like that. It was funny and a new culture for me, although when you are in front of the players and the boss, close to you, it is not so funny! I sang a Spanish reggae tune.” Caballero revealed to the official Chelsea website.
The 35-year-old went on to comment on the condition of the Chelsea squad ahead of the new season, revealing that the team are close to reaching the fitness levels required to compete in the Premier League.
