Ross Barkley is the latest Chelsea player to feature in a behind-the-scenes column in the official Chelsea website.

In this column, the Chelsea player gets to reveal some things that behind the scenes either in the training ground, the dressing room and on travels – that fans don’t get to see.

Barkley obviously revealed that Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante is the quietest player in the team. He also revealed what we all know that David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger are the noisiest in the team.

When asked about the outfield player who will do well as a goalkeeper, Barkley surprisingly revealed that Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud will make a good goalkeeper.

Barkley said: “It is Olivier Giroud. After training sometimes when we have done some tactical work, we will do some shooting and he will go in goal and have a bit of fun, when the goalies have been working really hard and they have had a long session.

“Ollie will say give us the gloves, I will go in goal and he loves to do that. And he is decent at it! Higuain is as well, he can be a decent goalie.”

Barkley also revealed that Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi is good at free-kicks and that the youngster has been training at it.

He said: “People know about Marcos, they know about David and they know about Willian – when we are taking set-pieces it is mainly me and them. Emmy (Emerson) has got a decent free-kick.

“Someone the fans might not know about is Callum Hudson-Odoi, he has been working on free-kicks a lot and concentrating on technique with Gianfranco Zola. I can see that when he is back and has had more training, he will be able to showcase his free-kick ability.”
