The 33-year-old admits he struggled to adapt after he started wearing the protective head guard and claims he has still suffered concussions
Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech admits he would prefer to play without his helmet but has revealed he would not be insured if he took it off during games.
The 33-year-old fractured his skull during Chelsea’s clash with Reading in October 2006 and has worn his rugby-style head guard since his return from injury three months later.
“I would be more confident if I had it off,” Cech told Tyden.
“Whether you like it or not, the helmet affects your surroundings.
“You have your ears covered and it makes hearing worse. But the doctor has forbidden me to take it off. I wouldn’t get insurance!”
Cech admits he struggled to adapt to wearing the helmet in his comeback game against Liverpool and admits he has still suffered concussions whilst wearing the protective headwear.
“Spatially, I was suddenly completely lost. As people began to shout, everything resonated through the helmet. I was totally confused. But I’m used to it now,” he said.
“Even with the helmet, I’ve been concussed twice. I don’t like to think about what might have happened if I’d not been wearing it.”
