Ex- Chelsea goalkeeper Marcin Bulka has revealed in a hilarious interview that Cesc Fabregas had to buy Willy Caballero a Range Rover after losing a bet – but there is no doubt it wasn’t quite what he was expecting.
World Cup winning midfielder Fabregas is known to have a decent penalty on him, scoring 15 of the 22 he has taken in his career.
And the Spanish playmaker clearly backed his ability from the spot – so much so he was willing to put a car on the line… twice!
Recounting the hilarious tale, former youth keeper Bulka claims that Fabregas successfully originally put one of his cars on the line for a penalty, but wasn’t quite as lucky when he tried his hand against current Blues no. 1 Caballero.

“One time in training he said to a keeper: ‘if you save my pen, I give you one of my two cars tomorrow’,” Bulka recounted.
“He didn’t save it, but another time he made the same bet with Willy Caballero.
“He said: ‘if you save my pen, I buy you a Range Rover’. Willy actually saved it.
Caballero was probably expecting something a little closer to this!
“Next day there is a Range Rover in the parking lot, probably from the 90s. All windows broken, door is falling off, mirror is gone.”
“Then he says to Willy: ‘there’s your Range Rover’.”
Bulka also gave an insight into life under Maurizio Sarri, and his rather “unhealthy” lifestyle choices.
“Let’s say he doesn’t have the healthiest lifestyle,” the Poland youth international added.

“He smokes like three packs of cigarettes per day, drinks coffee like crazy.
“He can smoke a whole pack on a coffee break.
“I’m actually a bit worried about how long he can live like this.”
