Petr Cech Set To Leave Chelsea

Petr Cech’s career in Chelsea may be finally over as Jose Mourinho’s recent comments suggests the goalkeeper may not be in his plans for next season.

“Petr is ready to fight for his position but Thibaut is the best young goalkeeper in the world, no doubts about that,” the Portuguese tactician said. 

“They will fight and for me it’s a good problem to have to make a decision.”

Mourinho’s mind is made up on who his second goalkeeper will be as he spoke highly of Mark Schwarzer in the cover up role.

“… I know that Mark Schwarzer is a very good keeper, very stable and a good man, completely ready to be our second goalkeeper like he was last season and to give positive performances if we need him to play.

“So if he’s our second goalkeeper, we will feel very safe with him.”

With these words, Mourinho hinted the end of Cech’s glittering career at Chelsea.

Thibaut Courtois had spent three years on loan at Atletico Madrid where he grew to be one of the best young goalkeepers in the world and would have stayed longer if he had no place yet at the Stamford bridge.

Both Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco are closely watching the Cech, who last week admitted “I don’t want to sit on the bench.”
