Cech not afraid of competition at Chelsea

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech insists he's not afraid of competition.

Thibaut Courtois, on-loan with Atletico Madrid, is seen as Cech's successor.

"I had Carlo Cudicini behind me when I came here, the best goalkeeper in the Premier League at the time," Cech told the Daily Mail. "When Ross Turnbull played for Middlesbrough he was a big English prospect and he really improved here.

"Hilario has always been ready to play, and you can see the difference at Fulham when Mark Schwarzer is not there. He has been absolutely brilliant for Middlesbrough and Fulham and I'm still playing. This has been really underestimated."
