Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has hinted that he will leave the Blues if the situation regarding his playing time does not improve quickly.

The Czech Republic international, who was Chelsea's number 1 for the past ten years after he joined from Rennes in 2004, has now lost his place this season to Thibaut Courtois.

The Belgian stopper was on loan at Atletico Madrid for three years, but has now returned to Stamford Bridge to become Mourinho's number one in both the Premier League and the Champions League.

Cech has only featured twice this entire season, and he made his first appearance in the league, when he replaced Courtois after the Belgian suffered an injury during the game against Arsenal.

The 32-year-old keeper is now ready to move on as he cannot accept sitting on the bench. And with the Euro 2016 coming up, he wants to play regularly and has decided that he will move on if the situation does not improve.

"I have not spoken to anyone, but I think they know me well enough at the club to know that the situation is definitely not the way I would imagine," Cech said, as quoted in the Guardian.

"With the Euros (in 2016) and the national team in mind, there is no time for me to sit on the bench and not to play. If the situation will not start to improve for me, then I will want to solve it," the Chelsea goalkeeper added.

Cech, who is still rated as one of the best goalkeepers in the world was speaking ahead of the Czech Republic's Euro Championship qualifier against Turkey.
