Jose Mourinho has insisted petr cech is free to leave the club in search of playing time, if suitors comes for him.
The 32-year-old has fallen from the pecking order as Belgian Thibaut Courtois Look more as the first choice, this season, after starting against Burnley last week.
“I think if that moment came the hierarchy in my club, the owner and the board – I come after them – Petr deserves to sit with him and to listen to him,” he told reporters.
“He deserves everything from this club. But this moment hasn’t arrived yet.”
Mourinho revealed that he is yet to give the goalkeeper an explanation for his decision, though he would be happy to sit down with Cech should he require some further reasoning.
“If I speak with him, tomorrow I have to speak to another one, another one, another one. I’ve never done this in my career. I don’t have to speak to players about decisions.
“For me, it’s the club, the team and then the players. The club is not under my control; the team, yes. So I want the players to see that everything I do is thinking about the team.
“I don’t like to be always justifying my decisions to the players. They all know where my office is. If they need an explanation, I never close the door. I’ll give one. Petr didn’t come to me.”
Though he concedes the shot-stopper needs to be playing games, he has not ruled out some rotation if Cech remains a Chelsea player.
“Petr has to play, Petr has to play. Obviously, I have no problems playing Petr in any match. It doesn’t matter where, which competition.
“I’m so confident playing him. For me, if I decide to make that rotation when we have an accumulation of matches, it’s probably the easiest position to do it.
“We have two of the best three goalkeepers in the world.”
