Chelsea stars Cesc Fabregas, Thibaut Courtois and Nemanja Matic (along with John Obi Mikel) have been doing some promotional work for the club in order to highlight their association with Rotary watches.
Such is the requirement of players to give value to the club’s numerous sponsors, this quartet were assembled to take part in a ‘Keepy Uppy Challenge’. And the result was a painful one to say the very least.
They only way to have made this Rotary vehicle more obvious would have been to ask the talent to dress up like giant watches while alternately shouting the name of the product down the camera lens.
But, alas, that is not what happened. Instead we have to endure what is quite frankly a pathetic ‘challenge’ between Fabregas, Courtois et al, which hardly suggests these four are international players.
Fabregas is first up, touching the ball a massive 10 times before his contribution comes to an end. Oh, and did we mention he is wearing a watch? In fact, they’re all wearing Rotary watches. During training. Wearing full kits. Nothing to see here.

Mikel is next to show us his skills. Hold on, John Obi Mikel made the cut? We can only assume that he is being used because nobody else was available, or that he happened to walk past while collecting the cones.
Courtois is the next man in action but, to cut a laborious story short, Matic ends up being the winner after catching the ball on his neck. Well done him. But, as we all know, there is no real winner here.
The clip ends with Matic running towards the camera, with his wrist watch in full view. I think we all probably got the idea by that point.
