Things have changed in football, nowadays players like Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Javier Zanetti, Francesco Totti seem seldom as Football has become a business and clubs have become massive brands who fight each other for being the top brand! In the world, People are questioning loyalty. Will the word loyalty become alien in a world of football? It can’t be as we can still see many young players who have played for one club and have vouched to play to their club entire career. It is not about questioning loyalty, it just seems bad that some things have happened this season at Chelsea. Firstly, Frank Lampard had to leave Chelsea and joined retire home league MLS, he was 36 year old and was going to retire soon but the fact that he joined Manchester City on loan for 6 months just seems odd.
Petr Cech has been a great servant for Chelsea Football Club, he has been the number one goal keeper at Chelsea for 10 years, has won many big trophies and he is still surely one of the best Goal Keepers in the world that any club would like to have in their team and he is just 32 which for a goal keeper is not that bad age and Petr Cech can probably play more than 5 years at top level. Chelsea had Thibaut Courtois a young talented keeper on loan at Atletico Madrid for couple of seasons and he has developed into a beast of a goal keeper. At the age of 22 which is 10 years younger than Petr Cech, Thibaut Courtois has become one of the best goal keepers around the world and Jose Mourinho has dropped their legend Petr Cech on the bench in favor of Courtois. So it is pretty clear that if Petr Cech’s game time will decrease a lot as Chelsea have got another number one who is clearly the future of Chelsea.
Petr Cech might still end up playing a few FA Cup, League Cup and may be a few Champion’s League games if he still works hard and tries to fight for the number one position. But to be fair Petr Cech should stay at Chelsea and end his career there as he is a legend and ofcourse earns a huge pay check and will have plenty of games to play, probably Cech should stay one more season atleast as he will be getting games and he is loyal to Chelsea and after one year may be look how things are and decide the future, whether he wants to play regularly at some other club or just sit on the bench e,arn huge paycheck, win trophies, and show loyalty towards Chelsea. Thibaut Courtois will also need 1 year to completely settle to English Premier League so for Petr Cech it is not over yet and he should stay at Chelsea atleast for one season and then decide on his career, overall he will remain one of the best Chelsea goal-keepers without a doubt.
