Willy Caballero has been an important part of the Chelsea team since joining from Manchester City.

Caballero is entering his third season at the club, and at the age of 37, the Argentine is looking forward to a good season.

Caballero might not be the first choice goalie but he has revealed that he has a good relationship with Kepa and they all help each other in training.

He told the official Chelsea website: “It’s been great working alongside Hilario and we’ve been training really hard,” said Caballero.

“We have three goalkeepers here, myself, Kepa and Jamie [Cumming] and we work on specific-goalkeeper drills, while the rest of the players work with the other coaches.

“We have a good bond and we are all enjoying the sessions so far. It is a lot of hard work with double sessions every day, but very enjoyable and spirits are high.

“I kept working even when I was on holiday, I would try to arrange a few days off to go into the gym or get out running. It’s so difficult to train on your own as a goalkeeper, but it’s mainly about staying in shape ready for the return of pre-season, which is what I did.

“It was a long season because of the Europa League final, so after that I went back home to Argentina and spent some time with the family. As a foreign player it’s important to get back home when you can and that was nice, to recharge the batteries before getting back down to work again. Now we have been here in Ireland for a week or so now and we are all enjoying it and working hard.”
