Petr Cech believes being crowned Premier League champions this season will be the beginning of a new era of glory for Chelsea and that that the wait for this year’s success has been too long.
Cech, who has largely been second choice goalkeeper behind Thibaus Courtois this season after a ten year spell as being Chelsea’s number one, says that winning the league on Sunday will push the latest group of Chelsea players to greater things.
“This one is hopefully the start of a new era, another generation of players, because there is only me, JT and Didier left from the team who have been here for the last decade.
“You can say this is a new Chelsea generation. Hopefully we will win the title on Sunday and this team will continue to grow.”
Cech has been the subject of fervent transfer speculation following his spell on the sidelines and it is now generally accepted that he will leave Stamford Bridge this summer with PSG and Arsenal among his suitors.
However, despite his lack of chances Cech still feels he has contributed to the team’s success and that the five years without the Premier League is far too long.
“It’s always nice to be there and make a contribution to the club’s success. At certain stages of this season, we have all contributed with moments that help us to be where we are.”
“The last title we won was back in 2010, so it has been a long time.”
Cech played in Chelsea’s 3-1 win at Leicester City and win the title with three points against Crystal Palace.
