Cech to delay surgery to play should Chelsea reach Champions League final


Petr Cech has decided to delay having surgery on his dislocated shoulder in a bid to play for Chelsea should they reach the Champions League final in May.

The goalkeeper, who suffered the injury during the first leg of Chelsea’s semi-final against Atletico Madrid, had been ruled out for the rest of the season but it has now been revealed that he hopes to be able to be ‘patched up’ in order to play should Chelsea make the showpiece final on May 24th.

Should Cech undergo the operation on his shoulder he would be out of action for three months, however it is believed that he could be fit enough to appear in his third Champions League final for the club.

About the situation, Jose Mourinho said

They are analysing the situation.

In other news, John Terry should be fit to face Atletico in the second leg after it was initially feared that he would be out for the rest of the domestic season. He will not, however, take part in Chelsea’s game at Anfield against league leaders Liverpool.
