Chelsea hand No 2 Willy Caballero one-year contract extension

WILLY CABALLERO has signed a new one-year deal at Chelsea.

The experienced keeper moved to Stamford Bridge two years ago from Manchester City to provide back-up for first choice Thibaut Courtois.

Caballero,37, has played nine games this season – twice in the Premier League and has kept five clean sheets.

The Argentine stopper was a free agent this summer and is delighted to be extending his stay in West London.

Caballero told “I am very happy to renew my contract with Chelsea and hopefully we can enjoy the next season and achieve a lot of targets.

“For me to stay at a big club like Chelsea was a really easy decision.

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia added: “Willy is an excellent professional who has served us extremely well over the past two years.

“He has provided reliable backup in that time and enjoyed some memorable performances, as well as helping us secure the FA Cup last season and reach the Europa League final later this month.

“He has also been a positive presence at the training ground, demonstrating dedication and professionalism every day and helping bring out the best in our first-choice goalkeepers.

“We are pleased to retain his services for the 2019/20 season.”

Caballero is expected to start on the bench for next Wednesday’s Europa League final against London rivals Arsenal.
