"It all went the way I needed to come back, and it was up to me to be fit and ready. When I came back, I picked up where I left off, and I had another 13 years of my career at the highest level full of trophies and memories."

The Czech Republic international continued his career for over a decade after his head injury against Reading and went on to win a further two Premier League titles during his time at Stamford Bridge.

He departed the club for Arsenal in 2015 and spent four years at the club before returning to Chelsea as a performance advisor under Frank Lampard.
