Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has warned his team mates that the return of Jose Mourinho does not guarantee a title next season.
Mourinho agreed to move back to the Premier League outfit this summer after enduring a tricky time in La Liga with Real Madrid.
Punters using their free bet may be interested to know that despite the Portuguese winning six titles, including two league titles and two League Cup trophies during his first stint at the club, the Czech international believes the division is much tougher this time around.
The former Sparta Prague man insists that the change of management at Manchester United and Manchester City will lead to a closely run title race next term.
Cech said: "We would like to do as best as we can and we will work hard to achieve our goals," he told reporters.
"But it's very hard to see who will be the biggest force before the season starts.
"All the teams you have spoken about have great squads, they have kept those players together and improved by buying some players."
