The Blues’ second-string goalkeeper Caballero wanted by West Ham

Chelsea FC News: West Ham are plotting a move for Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero, according to Evening standard.

The 37-year-old has fallen down the pecking order in recent years as he managed to make only 7 appearances in last two seasons.

And the arrival of Kepa Arrizabalaga, the world’s most expensive goalkeeper, to Stamford Bridge further worsened the situation of Caballero.

The Spaniard endured an eventful first season yet managed to keep Caballero at the bench.

Given this, the Hammers want to acquire the Argentine shot-stopper as a back up for the primary shot-stopper Lukasz Fabianski.

The Polish keeper won the Hammers player of the season award and Manuel Pellegrini is in need of perfect cover who could ease the workload of Fabianski.

The Hammers would definitely benefit a lot from Caballero given his vast amount of experience across Europe.

The former Manchester City goalkeeper also featured in the FIFA World Cup 2018 for Argentina but was censured for his horrific display against Croatia in the group stage.

Commencing his professional career with Boca Juniors, Caballero has played foror Spanish clubs Elche and Malaga.

The Blues were dealt with a transfer blow after  FIFA imposed a ban in the upcoming two transfer windows and this might could inflict the Hammers’ move to Caballero.

Chelsea and Tottenham fan fight turns into hilarious viral video

According to a report by The Sun, a video featuring a clash between Chelsea and Tottenham fans has gone viral on the internet.

The clash took place after the recent game against the North Londoners outside Stamford Bridge.

The video in question looks like something out of a bad comedy movie. While the fans do move around each other, nothing really happens. And perhaps that’s why the sped-up version has become such a hit among both sets of fans online.

When played in fast forward mode, it just looks like the fans are dancing around each other and the Benny Hill theme in the background does take it up a notch.

While these fights are usually frowned upon, this one has turned into a viral sensation and for all the right reasons.

Chelsea complete Antonio Rudiger Signing

Antonio Rudiger reacts to racist abuse vs Tottenham going unpunished

According to a report by The Guardian, Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has expressed his displeasure after no one got punished following allegations of racial abuse during the game against Tottenham Hotspur.

Rudiger has claimed that he was subjected to monkey chants even during the reverse fixture about two months ago but the police failed to find evidence.

The report adds that the player believes that speaking up about it as has placed a bigger target on his back. The Guardian further suggests that some Tottenham fans have hit back and accused the player of lying.

However, speaking on the incident, Rudiger said:

“It’s sad. I don’t know why they would. Maybe it’s because I voiced about the racism. If you boo me because of that then you are poor people.”

The defender went on to speak about how he feels lonely in this fight and while the win does make it better, Rudiger also said that racism won.

Racism is ugly and it should not have a place in this world, let alone on a football field. Let’s hope our players do not have to face anything of this sort in the future.
