Chelsea keeper Cech excited going back to Prague

Chelsea are unsure about how to approach their Europa League draw with Sparta Prague.

One player not complaining about a trip to the Czech Republic was goalkeeper Petr Cech, who will return to the club where he made his name.

"It is fantastic for me to be able, after 12 years, to finally play a Czech team in a European competition," Cech told Chelsea TV.

"Although the ideal scenario was to play them in the Champions League, this is one of the positives from not being able to play in the Champions League now.

"We will try to win the Europa League now and it is great for me to have this experience of going home and playing for Chelsea in Czech Republic."
