Turnbull: International break good for Chelsea youngsters

Chelsea goalkeeper Ross Turnbull says international week is always good for the youngsters.

With senior players away, Chelsea call up their Academy kids to fill positions.

"It's obviously quiet but we've had some good sessions after a couple of days off," he told chelseafc.com. "It's different but it's a good chance for the younger players to join in and train with the senior guys that are here and show the manager what they can do.

"We've got a big squad so there's not always the opportunity to come and join us, so that's a positive for them, and it's different for us, but we get on with it and train just as we normally would.

"It is good to see them involved, we have such good players coming through and both the reserves and the youth team are doing really well, so it's nice to see and good for us to see what the competition is for us in years to come! It's a great experience and I'm sure they enjoy stepping up and training with the likes of Michael Essien, Nicolas Anelka and Paulo Ferreira."
