Former Chelsea youth goalkeeper Marcin Bulka last month revealed in a hilarious interview how Cesc Fabregas had to buy Willy Caballero a Range Rover after losing a bet.

Fabregas was so sure of his penalty skills that he never thought it much to place a bet on it. At the end, he lost to penalty saving wizard Willy Caballero, and he had promised a Range Rover.

The former Chelsea midfield ace had now revealed how he went ahead to fulfill his promise.

“So, after a player already told the story to the press of what happened one day in 2018 and many people asked me if it’s true, there we go,” Fabregas recalled on Twitter.

“Many times for many years after training, I stay a little bit longer to take some penalties. I always made little bets with the goalkeepers to put a bit of spice into the challenge. For some reason, I never really missed one.

“So one day I got too confident and it got a of out of hand. It was Willy Caballero’s turn and I told him that if he saved it I’d get him a Range Rover. Unfortunately for me, he saved it in front of the whole team so you can imagine how it went.

“I went from feeling the most confident, to feeling the most stupid guy on earth. Everybody obviously was shouting and laughing that I had to pay my debt.

“I went to a scrap yard and I found a destroyed Range Rover that couldn’t be used at all for £950. So I said, you know what? I’ll get that.

“The next day they they brought to the training ground and well… I’ll show you the rest on a video. The lesson of the story is: Don’t bet at all at any cost.”
