Petr Cech has hit back at critics saying his Chelsea career is over, and confirmed that he's ready to fight for the number one spot.
Cech's future has come under severe speculation since Thibaut Courtois confirmed he would be back at Stamford Bridge for good this season, after a successful loan spell at Atletico Madrid.
The Czech Republic international has been arguably one of the best goalkeepers in the world since joining Chelsea in 2004 for a reported £7 million transfer fee.
In his two years on loan at Atletico Madrid, Courtois gained a reputation for being arguably the best keeper in the league.
The Belgium international won the Ricardo Zamora Trophy in both the 2012/13, and 2013/14 season, the trophy stands for the best goals conceded per games ratio.
Jose Mourinho has stated that he wants a competition for places at Chelsea, and that Cech and Courtois must fight for their place.
The 32-year-old has been linked with a big money move to French clubs Monaco and Paris Saint-German, including interest from Spanish giants Barcelona, and even London rivals Arsenal.
Cech spoke to Ekipa24 after Chelsea's 2-1 win over Olimpija Ljubljana on Sunday: "I'm staying at Chelsea, that for sure,"
"I really don't mind that there are two great keepers at Chelsea. That motivates me ever more.
"You always have to fight if you want to be on great level. And there is not only Courtois and me, even Matej Delac is showing that he is great keeper."
