How training right way won Turnbull Chelsea move

Ross Turnbull has lifted the lid on how he managed to win his move from Middlesbrough to Chelsea.

The goalkeeper told "I believe it was the scouting system here and Cristophe [Lollichon], the goalkeeping coach, also had a say in it.

"And I know when Middlesbrough played here at Stamford Bridge last season that he videoed my warm-up.

"So he looked at my technique then and it is great to think that someone would do that. Obviously he was impressed with what he saw and I am very grateful.

"Personally I never would have thought that a club would do that but I was wrong and I am just glad I did a good warm-up!"

The next major step in his Chelsea introduction will be in a week's time when Turnbull and the rest of the squad embark on the pre-season tour.

"I've seen a programme put together to show me the pre-seasons of past in America and it just looks out of this world.

"It is going to be a lot different from what I was used to at Middlesbrough. We went to Portugal last year, to the Algarve which is still pretty nice but this looks like it is going to be a fantastic trip and one I am looking forward to."
