Cech tells Chelsea fans: It could be worse ... we could be Arsenal!

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has backed club owner Roman Abramovich's ruthless treatment of his managers. Cech believes Chelsea fans would never swap the trophies won with the stability of Arsenal.

"We do it our way, the other clubs do it their way, and it seems to work so far, so long may it continue," said Cech, who arrived at Chelsea in 2004 and has played under eight of Abramovich's nine managers.

"You can argue with a lot of things but in the same period of time we won more or less the same number of trophies as Manchester United.

"They had one manager, we had eight, and we won the same trophies. We won the Champions League, there are so many positives.

"Arsenal had the same manager and it is a long time since they won something. You can't always say that is the fault of the manager or the players. Maybe if you asked them if they would rather have 10 managers and six trophies, I don't know what they would say."
