Petr Cech only thinking of Chelsea stay

Petr Cech says he's sticking with Chelsea.

Didier Drogba, Nicolas Anelka, Jose Bosingwa, Salomon Kalou and Alex have all left this year, but Cech insists that he has no intention of quitting Stamford Bridge.

Cech insists to The Sun: "This is my ninth season at the club and I always knew I was going to stay.

"I'm happy at Chelsea because I feel a big part of an ambitious and successful club and there was no need for me to change. I enjoy being a part of this circus.

"When I joined I was one of the youngest and even though I'm now one of the oldest, I'm still only 30.

"I still have the same hunger and appetite for this club as I did when I arrived.

"When the day comes that I don't have the hunger to go through pre-season and then travel all over the world for 60 games, that's when I will stop.

"But even playing in these pre-season games, I still get goose bumps when I run out onto the pitch. That has never changed since my first day at this club."
