Transfer Rumours

Mourinho can’t stop Cech from joining a Premier League side

hi-res-e73868e92601d9ead24010348b4c6a7f_crop_northJose Mourinho has admitted he can’t prevent Petr Cech from leaving Stamford Bridge to join a Premier League this summer.

The Chelsea goalkeeper is among the possible replacements for David De Gea, who is almost guarantee to join Real Madrid when the transfer window opens, although Arsenal are also keen to sign the Czech Republic international.

Mourinho has previously expressed his desire to keep the 33-year-old at Stamford Bridge but on Tuesday he admitted that the final decision on Cech’s future will be made by Roman Abramovich.

“My answer is not important because the owner is the owner, he is the person with the perspective I admire a lot, respect a lot,” said the Portuguese.

“He respects a lot of people who do important things for him like Petr.

“Since 2004 to 2014/15, 11 years of success with the club, 11 years of unbelievable behaviour.”

The Chelsea manager admitted he would have to accept Abramovich’s decision even if it was different from his.

“I will have to accept any decision that the owner has,” he added.

“I’m different. I have the same respect for Petr that everybody at the club has, but my answer would be no way. If the answer (from Abramovich) is different I will accept that.”
