New Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero has praised manager Antonio Conte's focus on tactics in training.

Caballero joined the Blues this off-season after spending three seasons with Manchester City, which saw him coached by Pep Guardiola in the last of those three campaigns.

The Argentine couldn't help but be impressed by the dedication and focus shown at his new club by another of world football's top managers.

"He is a very good coach," Caballero told Goal. "He is always focused on how we have to play in every training.

"He is very focused on what he wants. In every training session, we train a lot on strategy, tactics and movement to do everything what the team did last season by winning a lot of games.

"So he is a very good coach."

Chelsea topped the Premier League table last season, which earned the Blues a showdown with Arsenal in the Community Shield next Sunday. 

Chelsea downed by Inter

Though the Blues were defeated 2-1 by Inter in their final pre-season match on Saturday, Caballero thinks his side will take a lot of positives into the rematch of last season's FA Cup final, which the Gunners won 2-1. 

"It was a great pre-season," Caballero said. "Not the best result but... we played every game until the last minute against great teams.

"We have to take this and start the Community Shield on a strong note as it will be a great match."
