Chelsea goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois has suggested that teammate, Petr Cech could soon be hanging up his gloves, as he continues to struggle with injuries.
The 19-year-old joined the Blues from Genk as competition to the Czech shot stopper, and believes the Chelsea No.1 is running out of time at the top level, as a result of recurring knee and back problems, reports Goal.com.
He told Spanish radio station Onda Cero: "Chelsea's goalkeeping coach told me he doesn't know how much time Cech can play at the top level. I know he has problems in his knees and on his back."
Cech has been in fine form since joining from French club Rennes in 2004 and has been a pivotal part in the team's domestic success, while Courtois was shipped out to Atletico Madrid immediately on a season-long loan as a replacement for David De Gea.
