Goalkeeper Petr Cech is ready to return to active playing according to former Chelsea shot-stopper Mark Schwarzer.
Shwarzer believes Cech is still a better keeper than the options at Chelsea this after he was included in the club’s 25-man Premier League squad for this season.
The 38-year-old who is yet to feature in a comparative game for over a year looks sharp according to Shwarzer, and will be the club's fourth choice keeper this season.
"I spoke to him two weeks ago and we were talking about lots of different things, talking about Mendy, Kepa and himself training. And he just was saying that he felt so good.
"He said to me that, had he have known that having time off he would have felt so good, he would have only had six months off and wouldn't have retired.
"He actually believes he's fit enough and strong enough and good enough still to play in the Premier League. So it's an interesting one because he's caught in two jobs at the moment, he's Chelsea's Technical and Performance Advisor and that his number one role.
"But if an opportunity came along that was of interest to him, I wouldn't be surprised if we saw Petr Cech coming back out of retirement and playing somewhere. I'm not saying it's going to happen, but it would not be a shock to me if that happened," Schwarzer told Optus Sports.
