Petr Cech has ruled out Chelsea’s chances of winning the Premier League title until the 2025-26 season.
The Blues haven’t lifted the prestigious trophy since 2017 when they won it under ex-Tottenham boss, Antonio Conte.
Cech thinks that this is largely due to some of the recent changes at his former club, which includes their new ownership, as well as the departure and arrival of new players and coaching staff.
Cech has now stated that he doesn’t see Chelsea challenging for the league until the next two seasons.
He told Sky Sports: “If you speak about a league title, this season is not going they way they wished for.
“If they can have a really good strong end of the season and build up for the next season, maybe that’s the season where Chelsea can climb up the table, challenging for top four.
“The season after, is the first realistic year for Chelsea to challenge for the title.”
