Jose Mourinho is disappointed to see Petr Cech join Arsenal, but understands the goalkeeper’s reluctance to be second-choice at Chelsea.

Cech completed his move across London on Monday for a fee believed to be around £10 million, with the 33-year-old signing a long-term contract at the Emirates Stadium.

Mourinho openly stated that he did not want the Czech Republic international to leave Stamford Bridge – especially to a major Premier League rival – but has now acknowledged that he could not stand in Cech’s way, with the goalkeeper having fallen behind Thibaut Courtois in the pecking order.

“Petr has been a great servant for Chelsea for 11 years and helped this club to win almost everything there is to win,” he told the club’s official website.

“I always said I wanted him to stay but I understand Petr needed to move on to play first-team football every week.

“Sometimes you have to respect the wishes of someone who has earned so much respect with his service and actions for your club. I support [Roman Abramovich’s] decision to honour the player in this way.
