Willy Caballero joined Chelsea in 2017 from Manchester City, and the Argentine is now a veteran in his trade.

The 38-year-old has had spells in Argentina, Spain and England, and he has noted that Frank Lampard’s training sessions are interesting.

“I worked for two years with Italian coaches and they have their idea to do things, with repetitions every day,” he told the official Chelsea website. “The way we are working, training and playing with Frank is totally different and it’s totally beautiful to train with him.

“Sometimes as players we have our jobs to do but during the week we have to enjoy and we are enjoying training a lot. I don’t want to say it’s all funny things because we are professional but we are enjoying doing the shooting sessions, the competitions, and we are training our skills.

“With big managers, I’ve been training just for the win or I’ve been playing just to win but with Frank, we train our skills. Sometimes managers don’t know what they can do or can offer to players because they know the level of the player and they think they cannot improve the player’s level. In fact, this is possible and Lampard is doing this.”
