Cech OK with Chelsea's coaching carousel

MOST COMMENTED

After Chelsea's 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion, Chelsea's goalkeeer Petr Cech addressed the club's frequent coaching changes. (Interim coach Rafa Benitez , who took over for Roberto di Matteo last November, has already announced his exit at the end of the season.)

"You can argue with a lot of things but in the same period of time we won more or less the same number of trophies as Manchester United," Cech said. "They had one manager, we had eight, and we won the same trophies. We had the Champions League, there are so many positives.

"Arsenal had the same manager and it is a long time since they won something. Maybe if you asked them if they would rather have 10 managers and six trophies I don't know what they would say but it is always relative. We do it our way, the other clubs do it their way and it seems to work so far, so long may it continue."

On the possibility of Jose Mourinho returning to the Chelsea helm: "We had a fantastic success with him so why not, he is a fantastic manager. But I hope whoever comes to take the job will have better luck and that he will stay. I have been saying that for six years, I hope the new manager will find the momentum and he will stay."

    As long as Roman Abramovich owns Chelsea the managerial merry-go-round will continue. It's interesting that Cech didn't address the "fan revolt" against Rafa, for me it's the most embarrassing part of Chelsea. The owner sacks the manager only months after a European Cup victory and the fans crap on the new manager. Because they know its Roman's Russian billions that are keeping Chelsea where they are in the standings, they won't criticize the real culprit, instead they vent on his patsy. If Rafa has any self respect he will get as far away from Stamford Bridge as possible after May. The only justice in this scenario would be for Roman Abramovich to loose all his money in a scandal and Chelsea would return to being a mediocre club once again.
