Petr Cech questions decade-long Mauricio Pochettino tactic that risks ruining Chelsea key man

He named Lampard and John Terry as two of Chelsea’s most important players ever and said Jose Mourinho was his favourite manager.

Cech also questioned Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino’s tactic to have his keepers sit deep in their box.

He said: “In this position, in my liking, he’s too deep. That’s the philosophy you (the manager) have.

“Generally there are two philosophies in goalkeeping. Whether you want to take a more advanced position for shots, you close the gap, the angle, the goal, but you have less reaction time.

“Or you drop deep on the goal line, therefore you might have a little more time for a save but you open the goal 

“Pochettino’s goalkeeper coach has been with him from Tottenham, he has the philosophy of ‘OK you drop back, you always create space’.

“I think it’s the Spanish philosophy. I personally am the other way around. In a lot of situations to closing the angle and having less reaction time but having less space to cover, for me, is the advantage.”
