Mourinho: “Cech is a legend of this club”

by -

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly trying to persuade Petr Cech to stay at Chelsea. 

Cech is supposed to desire a move away from Chelsea after falling behind Thibaut Courtois in the pecking order at Stamford Bridge, and reports claimed a deal with London rivals Arsenal was done “at 99%”.

The 33-year old said he wasn’t sure where he would be come next season, and manager Mourinho has said that, should he have his way, Cech would stay at the club. Regardless,

“He’s a legend of this club but he’s a legend at 32 years old which is a very young legend for a goalkeeper,” Mourinho said.

“One of our strengths this season was to have the two best goalkeepers in the Premier League.”

He added: “I don’t know if we could be champions if he hadn’t played these seven matches. His contribution was decisive.”
