Chelsea legendary goalkeeper Petr Cech was a shock addition to Chelsea’s Premier League squad list, which was announced on Tuesday, with the former Czech International, having been spotted in training several times over the summer and this season.

In response to the news of Cech’s involvement, Chelsea legend and former assistant boss Gianfranco Zola, has revealed his surprise about Cech’s inclusion, and pondered whether his body will still be in the right frame. Although he never doubted the quality of Cech.

He told talkSPORT: “I’m totally surprised by that. At 38 he is, especially for a goalkeeper, at an age where nowadays it is quite normal.

“Petr has got unbelievable ability and experience, but I don’t know the condition of his body right now to be honest.

“But with his experience and ability as a goalkeeper there is no doubt he can do it.”
