Chelsea fans have a smile on their faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the Daily Star seem to think that Blues goalkeeper Petr Cech has claimed he will be staying at the club until his contract expires in 2016.
As we know, new boy Thibaut Courtois has made the goalkeeping position his own and looks pretty much unshakeable as the number one at the club and that of course leaves long-serving Cech on the bench.
Given Cech still has plenty to give and is at the peak of his powers, we can understand why he is frustrated and it seems that staying at the club is not his decision.
Although he did not seem entirely happy about it, the Chelsea stopper noted: “It is simple. If the club says ‘You are staying here’ then I will be staying. That’s why I’m staying. ”
As some of our punters think, unlike Manchester City’s Yaya Toure, we think that Cech is enough of a gentleman to make sure that his behaviour is nothing but professional and that he gives his all for the club if called upon by manager Jose Mourinho.
Chelsea fans. Should the club force Cech to stay or is that something that think is unfair given his massive contribution to your success? Let us know your thoughts below.
