Albion took up a one-year option on Cech at the end of the season but his future in the Black Country remains in doubt.
"I will have to fight for a place in the starting line-up," he told the Birmingham Mail. "We'll see how it all ends, whether I stay or go.
"I would like to stay but everything depends on whether it will be playing regularly. That is important.
"I spoke with the manager after his arrival and he told me he wanted the team to stay up and therefore did not want to interfere too much with the basic set-up or players.
"He chose players who he felt were right and we prospered. That's one of the reasons I wasn't getting chances.
''He had a very short time to save us and yet we kept in the league. Hopefully that will change now and I'll get a chance next season."
