Chelsea’s Petr Cech is considered to be one of the best goalkeepers in the world but the Czech footballer will have to perform better than ever in order to retain his spot in the starting lineup of Jose Mourinho as Thibaut Courtois has already made his return to Stamford Bridge after enjoying a sublime loan season with the Spanish club Athletic Madrid.
Along with Diego Costa, Courtois was another performer who played a huge role in the title winning season that Athletic Madrid enjoyed during the previous season.
The Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho has at his disposal 2 of the most outstanding players in the goalkeeping position and he will have to decide on which one of them is going to be his main for the Premier League and the Champions League of next season but Petr Cech stated to the media that he is ready for all the challenges and obstacles that await him.
‘’I don’t want to be on the bench. This is why I am trying to do everything to be in the team. I don’t want to talk about ifs and buts. Let’s see how I am going and what happens. You know I always give my best and obviously that is all I can do. I will do my best and do everything I can do to be as ready as possible for when the season starts’’
‘’Obviously Jose Mourinho will make his choice and decide how his team is going to look for the first game, second game, third game, whatever game. It is up to us players to show we are ready to play and make him pick us. I am not any different. I am doing everything I can to make him pick me’’
Petr Cech has proven season over season just how good he is but Courtois is being viewed as the next generation of goalkeepers along with Manchester United’s David de Gea.
