Chelsea No1 Cech amazed by passion of Asian fans

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech is looking forward to returning to Asia for preseason.

Cech is amazed by the passion Asian fans have for Chelsea.

"More than 80,000 people last time we were in Kuala Lumpur, for a friendly game, was amazing to see," Cech admitted to chelseafc.com. "That's why we keep coming back. The fan base has grown so fast that we have full stadiums for the games, and you can see the enthusiasm of the people everywhere you go.

"At the moment, the standard of the Premier League is above what they have in Asia, but they are improving, and in terms of facilities we have always got what we needed, and it has worked for us."
