Cech has no fears about returning to action
Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has no qualms about his possible return to Premiership action this weekend - just three months after suffering a horrific head injury against Reading.
The 24-year-old, hoping to be back on the field away to Liverpool tomorrow, is confident he is bearing no mental scars from an injury which means he will have to wear a head-guard to keep goal.
'I have never felt as strong, physically and mentally, as I do now,' he told The Sun.
'I played my first game in training last Tuesday. I didn't think about my injury at all.
'I dived in at the strikers' feet, and it was no problem.
'I know I am not risking my life by playing again, and that is the main thing. I must not think too much - other people are more afraid than I am.'
Cech was injured in a challenge from Stephen Hunt - and the goalkeeper admits he wishes the Reading midfielder had had time since to contact him about the incident .
'I was disappointed to see Stephen Hunt talked a lot about me in the press, while he never called me. That wasn't so difficult to do,' he said.
'He didn't write to me. In October, I had a letter of apology from Reading Football Club, with his signature on it - nothing more.'
Cech claims he remains unsure of Hunt's thoughts when the pair collided.
'I was disappointed [not to hear from Hunt] - but I told myself it must be difficult for him also to live with it,' he added.
'I don't know if he did it on purpose - and I am not interested in knowing.'
