Jose Mourinho has praised the club’s owner Roman Abramovich for allowing Petr Cech to join Arsenal, admitting that if it had been left to him he would have attempted to dissuade the goalkeeper from joining Chelsea’s rivals.
Mourinho believes that the club demonstrated their affection for Cech by permitting him to leave so that he could stay in his Surrey home, where he and his family are settled, and play for Arsenal after he lost the No 1 slot to Thibaut Courtois at Chelsea.
Mourinho : ‘I understood the good thing about the decision the club made. I think it brings the club into a different dimension. It makes every player understand what this club is. Our owner is saying to everybody that human relationships and loyalty is more important than football.’
