Ex-Chelsea keeper Caballero training with AFC Wimbledon

Former Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero is training with League One AFC Wimbledon.

The Argentina international left Chelsea in June after his contract expired and has been a free agent since.

The experienced goalkeeper, who has had spells with Boca Juniors, Elche, Malaga and Manchester City, has been training with The Dons for the past four weeks.

"To cut a long story short, basically my friend is a coach at Chelsea and Willy is without a club at the moment. To stay fit, he asked if we could have him in," said the club's first-team goalkeeping coach, Ashley Bayes.

"He's been brilliant around the group, great personality and character and what an experience to coach him and for our younger lads to learn from him! It's fantastic.

"He loves it! If you see him training every day, he loves throwing himself around, he loves getting involved – he's a great guy and it's good to have him in.

"I'm learning off him as well. He's showed us some good stuff – what he's learnt at Chelsea and Manchester City. It's great for the young ones, I mean what an experience for them!"
