Chelsea keeper Petr Cech moves closer to full protective body suit
Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech spent a fair chunk of Saturday’s match at Blackburn on the ground receiving treatment for a nose injury. He eventually got up and played on with a rather fetching nose bandage in place for the remainder of the game.
Now he’s emerged with a protective mask to guard his damaged schnozzle. He’s opted for black to match his existing protective headgear (which we assumes he wears for shopping trips, meals out etc).
Either that or he is hatching a pretty unsubtle plan to rebrand himself as football’s first superhero. Keeping the villains in Cech. There: we’ve got his superhero tagline, but what’s his name?
