Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech insists that his side have no excuses for ending the season without a trophy, despite their current transition, ESPN
The arrival of manager Andre Villas-Boas in the summer has seen a change at Stamford Bridge and big names such as Nicolas Anelka and Alex have been shown the door. Villas-Boas is keen to implement his own ideas on the squad and has made young signings in the summer, as well as securing a deal to bring Gary Cahill to Stamford Bridge from Bolton. Despite the evident transition at the club, Cech believes that the standards Chelsea have set under owner Roman Abramovich leaves no excuses for not winning silverware.
‘We want, ourselves, to win something. We don’t want to go another season without trophies, so our aim is to end this season with silverware. We’re doing everything in our power to achieve that alongside the transformation and transition of the team. I think it will be a good year to build on for the future’, the 29 year old said.
Cech’s future within the Chelsea squad may be drawing to an end after the Blues were linked with signing Swansea goalkeeper Michel Vorm. The Dutchman has impressed at the Liberty Stadium and Swansea director John van Zweden has revealed that four clubs are interested in Vorm, including Chelsea. Villas-Boas also signed Thibault Courtois in the summer from Genk and he has impressed whilst on loan at Atletico Madrid, so Cech could be in danger of leaving the club.
