Marek keen to Cech out

Published Add your comment

Slovakian left-back Marek Cech has revealed he wants to leave West Brom after claiming he has "been lied to" by manager Tony Mowbray.

Cech maintains Mowbray broke a promise to play him in Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash at Aston Villa, instead preferring the returning Paul Robinson in the 2-1 defeat. The international defender, who joined Albion in a £1.4million deal from Porto last summer, now appears to have had enough of life at The Hawthorns.

"I feel like I've been lied to," said Cech, speaking to a Slovakian news agency, with the quotes reported in the Birmingham Mail. "I felt I'd played well enough in the two previous games to play against Aston Villa, but the manager decided to pick Robinson, which I feel was wrong."

He added: "As far as I'm concerned, I want to leave West Bromwich. I haven't been given the opportunities to play that I believe I warrant."

Italian club Napoli are rumoured to be interested, but Cech added: "I've had no concrete offers from Napoli, but if I was then I'd want to speak to them."

It is not the first time Cech has spoken out in relation to broken promises and his desire to leave the club.

Just after Christmas, Cech insisted when he signed for Albion he was told by Mowbray he would be a regular.

But after starting the first game of the season - a 1-0 defeat at Arsenal - in an unaccustomed right-midfield role, Cech played just 61 minutes of league football in four substitute appearances prior to figuring against Tottenham.
