Petr Cech admits Chelsea’s future unclear amid fears club may not finish season

Petr Cech has broken the silence over Chelsea's disastrous situation by admitting the club's future is "out of their hands".

The Blues' technical and performance advisor was the first senior member of staff to finally comment since Abramovich decided to sell the club.

Chelsea and owner Abramovich have been hit with heavy sanctions which mean the west London side cannot sell tickets or merchandise, nor can they make new signings or extend player contracts.

And with the Blues struggling to obtain the necessary funds, club legend Cech offered a brutally honest assessment of the situation.

When asked by Sky Sports whether Chelsea will complete the Premier League season, he said: "We have to admit we go day-by-day because we don't have this in our hands.

"The conversations are going on and we hope that we can try to operate the way that we can finish the season.

"Obviously it is a difficult season because we are part of the Premier League, one of the best competitions in the world and I believe that for us to be able to carry on to finish the season would obviously help everyone involved in the Premier League."

Chelsea are facing on-field problems as well as the potentially crippling financial restraints imposed by the UK government.

Three of the side's most experienced defenders in Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen are set to walk away for free in the summer.

Cech went on to say the Chelsea hierarchy are in constant communication with the government to solve the situation and ensure the club can finish the season while not going bust.

He added: "That is something that I am not involved in but we have the board and people from the club talking to the government everyday about the current licence and how we can operate, and what we can do to try and finish the season the best way that we can.

"It is a conversation that are constantly going over and over but we are going day by day, trying to focus on every game and we are hoping that the situation is clearer soon."
