Chelsea’s Petr Cech wants to end Premier League title drought
Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech says he wants to win the Premier League title this season
Petr Cech has challenged Chelsea to end their four-year wait to lift the Premier League trophy.
The Czech Republic international won the top-flight crown twice under Jose Mourinho in the Portuguese’s first reign at Stamford Bridge before Carlo Ancelotti’s Chelsea side were crowned champions in 2010.
The 31-year-old, who joined the Blues from Rennes in 2004, hopes Mourinho’s return can inspire sustained success at the west London side with the squad packed full of young talent.
“We haven’t won the Premier League for three years in a row, so I think it would be great to get that back,” Cech told Sport magazine.
“We have some young players, some new players who have never won the league, so it would be a great step forward for them to come and accomplish that.”
Cech has featured in two Champions League finals, losing to Manchester United in 2008 before beating Bayern Munich on penalties at Allianz Arena a year ago.
And the Chelsea shot-stopper would love another shot at winning a second European Cup.
He added: “We know how sweet it is to win the European Cup, too, so if we could go far in that and really challenge for the title, then that would be great.”
