Cech claims situation at Chelsea is frustrating
According to Petr Cech, his situation at Chelsea FC at present is definitely frustrating and it has prompted him to start thinking about moving away from the club.
Cech has not been included in the starting line up of the Blues in any of the league matches that they have played in the 2014-15 Season.
The Italian’s only league appearance so far came versus Arsenal the previous weekend and that too only because the no. 1 goalie Thibaut Courtois injured himself in the middle of the match.
Cech’s main concern is that if he doesn’t play that much at Stamford Bridge, he might fall out of favour for Czech Republic as well.
Speaking in a Radio programme the other night, the stopper said, “I am yet to talk to anybody at Chelsea, but, they are quite aware of how I am feeling right now. It’s not the kind of situation I had expected at the start of the summer.”
“The European Championship is just a year and a half away. Keeping that in mind, I want to play. Every player wants to play leading to such a big competition. So, it’s hard for me to just keep waiting for my chances. If it doesn’t improve, I might well have to do something about it.”
Cech is a part of Czech Republic squad for the Euro qualifying game versus Turkey that is going to be played this Friday. He, in all likelihood, will be a starter in that game.
Cech is not too far away from becoming the most capped Czech footballer ever. He just has to play 10 more matches to overtake the current record holder Karel Poborsky who has a total of 118 international matches to his name.
Poborsky retired from international football in 2006.
