Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech hass revealed that he still wakes up with severe headaches after the collision with Reading’s Stephen Hunt which fractured his skull.
Cech said the last thing he remembers is changing ends before the game kicked off, and he cannot recall the incident which happened 20 seconds into the match.
“You wake up and have a horrible headache, so you have to take your medication,” he told the club website.
“I just try to live with that and every day it is going to get better.”
Cech underwent surgery and had two plates inserted in his skull.
He said he had watched the incident on TV but admitted he did not like thinking about what happened.
“I’ve seen it on TV once but don’t want to speak about this for the moment.
“The shake-hands is the last thing I remember because John Terry lost the toss and I had to run to the other side. That is the last thing.”
Cech said he had been overwhelmed by the messages of support he had received both from Chelsea supporters and fans of otehr clubs.
“I think it has been fantastic from everyone. It has been the players, the managers, the staff. It was everyone in Chelsea, including supporters,” he said.
“I got so many cards and letters from people outside, not involved in Chelsea, and I want to thank them all for that.”
