“No boss it’s the worst” – Chelsea legend reveals manager who ran the worst training sessions

Chelsea legend Petr Cech has revealed a surprising former Blues manager as someone who ran bad training sessions.

During his time at Stamford Bridge Cech worked under some of the best managers the game has seen including the likes of Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti.

The former goalkeeper arguably had his most successful time at the club in Mourinho’s first spell in charge where he was part of a Blues defence that conceded just 15 goals in the 2004/2005 season and he kept 24 clean sheets in the process.

The 41 year old was recently asked on Sky Sports Monday Night Football who his favourite manager he worked with was and he picked Mourinho.

Cech named Ancelotti as second on the list despite only working with the Italian for a short period of time but revealed he didn’t agree with his training sessions.

Speaking on The Obi One Podcast he said: “When a new manager arrived, Carlo Ancelotti, he was like ‘wow, this training is so intense, it’s like a match’. I was like, ‘no, boss it’s the worst’ because I felt everyone looked tired and wasn’t training well. Carlo didn’t understand this because he wasn’t used to that.”

Cech recently held a position on the club’s board but stepped down shortly after the change of ownership at Stamford Bridge.

He arrived in west London for just £7m in the summer of 2004 from French club Rennes and went on to make 494 appearances for the Blues and kept 228 clean sheets.
