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.”
