After spending his last season on loan at Vitesse, Lewis Baker his training with Chelsea in the pre-season and he feels good ahead of the new season despite admitting the Asian tour was very tough.
“It’s been a good couple of weeks for us in Asia”, – Baker told Chelsea official website -. “A couple of disappointing results but pre-season is really about getting our fitness levels up and coming together as a team. The training has been tough especially in the heat but it’s been good for us and we should be ready for the Community Shield now. After beating the Gunners in Beijing, the team spent a week in Singapore, regularly training twice a day and playing testing matches against Bayern and Inter in the International Champions Cup Singapore. It’s a long way to travel but I really enjoyed spending a week in Singapore. It’s a nice place, the facilities are good and we’ve been treated very well”.
