Petr Cech has revealed that he’s eager to leave Chelsea this summer unless he becomes Jose Mourinho’s No. 1 again.
The Czech stopper had been the Blues’ main man for just about 10 years before Thibaut Courtois’ return from a three-year loan spell at Atletico Madrid at the start of the season.
The Belgian had starred for the Spaniards and developed a reputation as one of the best stoppers in Europe, prompting Mourinho to give him the nod in a bid to ensure he stayed at Stamford Bridge.
Courtois has since impressed, limiting Cech to appearances in cup and European games, much to his frustration.
The likes of Arsenal and Liverpool have been alerted by the 32-year-old’s woes, and now the goalkeeper has admitted that, unless things change, he will looking to move on in a few months’ time:
“I don’t know what the club’s idea will be. It looks like it works well with me and Thibaut as a duo.” He’s quoted by The Mirror.
“But that can work for one season only. I don’t want another one like this.”
“There always will be speculation, I leave it for the summer,
“It will be important to sit down with the club, with the manager, to consider all the pros and cons. We will see what will work out the best.”
Cech has made just short of 400 outings for Chelsea since his arrival from Rennes back in 2004
