Cech desperate to return

Published Add your comment

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech is back in training and waiting for surgeons to give him the go-ahead to play following his horrific facial injury.

Cech required 50 stitches to his chin and lip after an accidental training ground collision with team-mate Tal Ben-Haim, and speculation was rife he would miss the rest of the season.

But the Czech Republic international hopes to return quicker than expected and said: "I can still train. The problem is I cannot afford any contact so I can run, I can do some stuff in the gym and I am waiting for the solution from the surgeon to get me back on the field."
