Despite what is looking increasingly like a trophy-less season for Chelsea, it looks like the Blues aren’t spending too much time sulking.
Chelsea TV caught footage of some of the players playing a pickup game of basketball during training. We’re hoping it was just a fun way to stay fit, because if this was meant to showcase any skills for a prospective career-switch, they’re barking up the wrong tree.
You can tell these gents spent the bulk of their time using their feet, not their hands. It’d be like asking a carpenter to use his feet to build a set of stairs. Sure, the job would get done (maybe), but it certainly wouldn’t look natural.
One lesson we can extract from this video, though? David Luiz is as gun-shy from distance with a basketball as he is with a soccer ball. Brick city! Oh, and don’t forget to watch out for Jon Obi Mikel playing some Dennis Rodman defense on Cesar Azpilicueta.
Back in December, Bayern Munich’s stars also tried their hand at basketball, with similar results. Check it out here.
