Chelsea keeper coach Lollichon delighted for Cech over 100 caps landmark

Chelsea goalkeeper coach Christophe Lollichon is delighted for Petr Cech after he won his 100th Czech Republic cap this week.

Lollichon, who worked with Cech at Rennes before linking up once more at Stamford Bridge in 2007, praised the number one's professionalism.

He told chelseafc.com: "Petr is a fantastic man,' he said. 'He tries to do everything to maintain his performance, and he has all the qualities - mentally, tactically, physically. He is special, the complete goalkeeper.

"For his country to have him is very lucky, but he has been unlucky that it has been difficult to win titles. Czech Republic is not a big country, but they had a very good generation a few years ago, and he won the European Under-21 Championship against France in 2002, because of his penalty saves.

"To play 100 times is a fantastic achievement, but it is normal because Petr is one of the best goalkeepers in the world."
