Mourinho gives latest Chelsea injury update after Atletico draw
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho confirms that Petr Cech has been ruled out for the season with a shoulder injury
Petr Cech has been ruled out for the rest of the season after the Chelsea goalkeeper picked up a shoulder injury in Tuesday’s Champions League draw at Atletico Madrid.
The Czech Republic international was forced off in the 18th minute of the semi-final first leg after falling awkwardly and will not feature again for the remainder of the campaign.
Petr Cech’s season over. Don’t ask me technically, but season over
Mourinho also confirmed that captain John Terry is facing a spell on the sidelines after he was substituted with a foot injury during the goalless draw.
“Petr Cech’s season over. Don’t ask me technically, but season over,” said Mourinho.
“And John – we have to play the [Champions League] final for him to play with us.”
Chelsea host Atletico Madrid in the second round of the semi-final clash at Stamford Bridge next Wednesday.
