Chelsea keeper Cech reveals management ambitions

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech admits he has big management ambitions.

Cech is thinking about life beyond his playing career.

He told the London Evening Standard: "If I go into coaching, my ambition is not to start at a small team and end at a small team. Obviously, I want to do the best, as I have done in my playing career. My target will be to be in charge of a good team and to play against the biggest teams, so why not Chelsea? To start your managerial career at Chelsea is not a good idea. To start at a big club is a really big ask. A lot of people think if someone has been at a big club, there is a good reason to go there.

"But being a manager is a completely different story. I would say it's always nice to build a career, to start somewhere where you can learn and then, one day, maybe I could be at Chelsea.

"I've had the privilege to work with one of the best managers in the world all of the time [Jose Mourinho, twice, Avram Grant, Felipe Scolari, Guus Hiddink, Carlo Ancelotti, Andre Villas-Boas, Roberto di Matteo and Rafa Benitez]. Everybody has a different approach and you learn from them."
