Petr Cech has strongly hinted that his future lies away from Chelsea if he continues to play second string to current number one Thibaut Courtois, according to Sky
The keeper was first choice at Stamford Bridge for almost eleven years and is close to making 500 club appearances with 472, with over 150 of those clean sheets in what has been an ever reliable career with the Blues.
However the start of this season saw the return of Thibaut Courtois after three years spent on loan at Atletico Madrid and reportedly he would look to leave if he didn’t find himself first choice.
Jose Mourinho granted his wish and the Belgian has been impressive ever since – leaving Cech on the bench and unhappy.
The Czech goalkeeper has only played 66 minutes of Premier League football after the 22-year-old had to be substituted with a mild concussion and Cech has now suggested it may be time to move on.
He said: “I think they know me well enough at Chelsea to know that the situation is definitely not the way I would imagine.
“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.”
During his time at Stamford Bridge the 32-year-old has won a significant amount of silverware – three Premier League titles, four FA Cups, two League Cups, the Champions League and the Europa League.
