Mourinho happy Arsenal keeper Cech offered Chelsea return

Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is happy to hear Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has an offer to return to Stamford Bridge once he retires.

Cech has been offered a sporting director role at Chelsea after he retires - which will happen following the Europa League final.

"I feel sorry for some Chelsea and Arsenal fans that they couldn't find a way to be in Baku supporting their teams," said Mourinho on Sky Sports.

"It is Petr Cech's last football match. I think it is the match you would choose if you could chose a match to retire.

"This would be the match and I'm pretty sure that before he comes home, it looks like he comes home, next season, to Chelsea, I think of course he would love to do it in a winning way because he is a winner. He's won so many things.

"It looks like it's the last match in blue for Eden Hazard."
