Chelsea great Zola: Cech has ability to prove himself again

Chelsea great Gianfranco Zola can see Petr Cech proving himself again at first team level.

Cech retired over a year ago, but has been named in Chelsea's 25-man Premier League squad for this season.

“I'm totally surprised by that," Zola told talkSPORT. “At 38 he is, especially for a goalkeeper, at an age where nowadays it is quite normal.

“Petr has got unbelievable ability and experience, but I don't know the condition of his body right now to be honest.

“But with his experience and ability as a goalkeeper there is no doubt he can do it."
