Mourinho to make Cech Chelsea vice-captain

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho will name Petr Cech as the club’s vice-captain in an effort to convince the goalkeeper to stay at Stamford Bridge, ESPN has reported.


Petr Cech


Thibaut Courtois is due back at Chelsea after three years on loan with Atletico Madrid and could usurp Cech in the Blues’ first team. If that proves to be the case then the experienced Cech is expected to push for an exit - but Mourinho hopes that appointing him as second in command behind John Terry can help persuade the Czech Republic international to stay put.


Frank Lampard was vice-captain but he left the club at the end of the season when his contract expired. Terry is the longest-serving player in Mourinho’s squad, while Cech is approaching his 10th year as a Chelsea player, having moved from Rennes in the summer of 2004, the same year Mourinho took over for the first time.


Cech will miss the start of the season after shoulder surgery and will have to fight to dislodge Courtois, who helped Atletico to success in Spain last year, winning the title and reaching the Champions League final, knocking out Chelsea in the semi-final. Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco are known to hold interest in Cech.


The 32-year-old has made more than 400 appearances for Chelsea, winning the Premier League title three times - twice under Mourinho - as well as four FA Cups, the Europa League and the Champions League.
