Chelsea’s stalwart goalkeeper Petr Cech has given indications that he could make a move away from the Stamford Bridge giants following his comments on Czech Radio.
“I think they know me well enough at Chelsea to know that the situation is definitely not the way I would imagine.
”With the European Championships in 2016 and the national team in mind, there is no time for me to sit on the bench and not to play.
“I have not spoken to anybody at the club but if the situation will not start to improve for me then I will want to solve it.”
The 32-year-old has only made one start this season in the Capital One Cup and has been kept out of the starting XI in the Premier League by Thibaut Courtois with Cech only managing one substitute appearance this term.
Cech has been a very loyal servant to the Blues over the last ten years but if we know anything from football management and, in particular, Jose Mourinho management is that he will pick the best team on their merits at the present moment and no allowances will be made for reputation alone.
It is a time of change in the position and with two goalkeepers of such a high standard competing for the one position it will be difficult to stomach for either Cech or Courtois to be left out.
It is surely a tough period for Cech and it would be difficult for him to move on from a club where he has spent so much time but this writer believes he should move while he still has a few years of top flight football left in him as the 22-year-old Belgium international appears to be changing the guard at the Blues.
