Chelsea will be playing in Beijing and Singapore as part of the club’s pre-season plans and Chelsea vice-captain of last season Gary Cahill has revealed he’s looking forward to the pre-season in Asia.
He told the official Chelsea website: “We’re looking forward to going to Asia this summer, the fans are so passionate you can’t help enjoying yourself. I haven’t been to China or Singapore before so it’s good to be able to tick off some more places.
“It’s amazing to see the passion for Chelsea wherever we go. The fans in Asia are crazy, making the commitment to watch games in the middle of the night when we are playing so it’s nice to be able to give a little something back.”
Cahill is expected to be Chelsea’s captain next season after leading the club to the title last season as stand-in captain.
