Branislav Ivanovic: There are a lot of things you can learn from Petr Cech


Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic was full of praise for goalkeeper Petr Cech after joining the Czech and four other foreign players in reaching 300 or more appearances for the club.

The 30-year-old joined the "Chelsea 300 club" on Saturday after playing the full 90 minutes against Manchester City and joins the likes of Didier Drogba and Gianfranco Zola as one of the five foreigners to reach the target for the club.

"I am very proud," Ivanovic told Chelsea TV.

"You have to prove yourself again and again. I am very proud to be part of that group of players to reach 300.

"To be part of that group with big names who gave a lot for this club, I am very proud.

"Gianfranco [Zola] is an idol of Chelsea supporters, to be next to him is an amazing feeling.

"[John Mikel] Obi as well has a lot of great, amazing games. Unfortunately he is injured at the moment but he will give a lot this season until the end. He has reached 300, it's amazing and we know how hard it is.

"Didier [Drogba] is one of the greatest and best players in our squad. At the moment he is very important for us as a person. He gives a lot of things for the club, and I am proud to be part of the team in which Didier played.

"Now I am repeating myself, but Petr Cech is top of the list. He is an example of how someone has to be in professional football. He is a top-class man and a top-class goalkeeper.

"There are a lot of things you can learn from Petr Cech."
