​Chelsea keeper Caballero: My daughters won't let me retire!

Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero says that his daughters are refusing to let him retire!

The 37-year-old is still going strong in the Premier League, albeit as a backup at the Blues.

With a reputation as a penalty specialist, Caballero can still play a critical role at some stage in the club's season. And he says that he keeps going in the game for his family.

Speaking to Argentinian outlet Enganche, the stopper said: "I live for football and consume it whenever I can. My daughters won't let me retire.

"Many times I joke at home that this will be my last year, and they tell me that I won't be able to live without it. I need to play it, watch it on TV or know what's going on.

"It's what I like, to analyse and see what we did well and what we did wrong.

"I came to Chelsea because I love what I do.

"I don't know how to do anything else that isn't training and playing football. Being here, even if I don't get to play, I push on and I try to achieve my best form to be able to contribute in my own way.

"Sometimes a team needs you more off the pitch than on, and you are just as important. But football is forever.

"Here at Chelsea, at a table in my house, in a bar and anywhere else.

"To meet with friends who are also players to watch football and analyse it still draws me to it."
