A couple of weeks ago, former Chelsea keeper Marcin Bulka revealed a hilarious story about Cesc Fabregas losing a bet to Willy Caballero and paying him with a Range Rover.
As no one had really heard that story before, the Spaniard was naturally bombarded with questions as to whether it really happened. As it turns out, it did, and there’s even a video proof.
“So, after a player already told the story to the press of what happened one day in 2018 and many people asked me if it’s true, there we go,” Fabregas recalled on Twitter.
“Many times for many years after training, I stay a little bit longer to take some penalties. I always made little bets with the goalkeepers to put a bit of spice into the challenge. For some reason, I never really missed one.
“So one day I got too confident and it got a of out of hand. It was Willy Caballero’s turn and I told him that if he saved it I’d get him a Range Rover. Unfortunately for me, he saved it in front of the whole team so you can imagine how it went.
“I went from feeling the most confident, to feeling the most stupid guy on earth. Everybody obviously was shouting and laughing that I had to pay my debt. “I went to a scrap yard and I found a destroyed Range Rover that couldn’t be used at all for £950. So I said, you know what? I’ll get that. “The next day they they brought to the training ground and well… I’ll show you the rest on a video. The lesson of the story is: Don’t bet at all at any cost.”
With football on hiatus across Europe (including France where Cesc is currently playing), our former midfielder has become quite prolific on social media, and engaging, too. Clearly, those anecdotes could help us pass the time until football returns.
