Willy Caballero has revealed some of his training ground routine in a feature on the official Chelsea website called ‘The Work Behind’.
The Argentine has admitted that he is usually the second in training, while third choice goalkeeper Eduardo is always the first to get to Cobham.
He said: “Normally if we are training at 10.30am I get to the training ground at around 9am and I am usually the second person to arrive, after Eduardo. I’ll have breakfast with my team-mates and drink Mate (South American tea) with Marcos Alonso and we will spend a bit of time talking.
“I go to the gym after training, so beforehand I just try to enjoy the company of my team-mates. In the changing room is generally where all the funny stuff happens so it’s nice to enjoy a good bond with the other players.”
He also revealed that he spends extra time outside of training hours in the gym.
He said: “Yes, I do a lot after training. I spend an hour in the gym every day, I have a plan which is specific for a goalkeeper, and the day before a game I will try to do more work for my posture, so things like yoga or pilates. The day before a game we do less work quantity-wise so I prefer to do stretching or something like that.”
