Cech Better Than Chelsea Goalkeepers – Says Ex-Goalkeeper

Former Chelsea goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer has claimed that Petr Cech was the best goalkeeper training at Chelsea this season before Edouard Mendy arrived at the club.

Schwarzer has heard that Cech, who was named in the Blues 25-man Premier League squad despite retiring in 2019, was performing better in training sessions than Kepa Ariba…whatever and ‘Willing’ Caballero. The Blues have had to sign Edouard Mendy before Frank Lampard becomes forced to play Cech.

‘From my understanding, he was better than the Chelsea keepers. But this was before Mendy arrived at the club.

‘He was performing and training better than the Chelsea keepers. He just was saying he felt so good.’ The Australian said.

Cech is one of the most successful goalkeepers in Chelsea’s history, having won four Premier League titles, four FA Cups and both the Champions League and the Europa League competitions during his 11-year stay at Stamford Bridge.

Schwarzer added: ‘He said had he known that after having time off he would have felt so good, he would have only had six months off and wouldn’t have retired.

‘He actually believes he’s fit enough and strong enough and good enough still to play in the Premier League. I know he’s kicking the ball further than he did towards the end of his career.

‘The injuries he had, the problems he had with his ankle, his calf, they were hindering his kicking game. So apparently he has no problems with that at all any more. He’s kicking the ball as far as he [ever] did.’
