KoogaPetr Cech has revealed that he will have to play in a rugby-style headguard for the next three years to protect his fractured skull. The Chelsea keeper returns to full training today and will be sporting his custom-made head gear, which includes a protective metal plate.

Cech said: "It doesn’t limit me, I’ve been training with it for two months and got used to wearing it. I am not going to be afraid. The training sessions confirmed I have nothing to fear." You can get a similar headguard from Kooga for that authentic Petr Cech look. Click here to buy it. [Rob Parker]

    Petr Cech is wearing a Canterbury of New Zealand (CCC), headgear. A Kooga Headgear is nothing like it at all.
    The Kooga shown is a very poor copy of an old Canterbury model that was superceded years ago.

    Petr Cech is wearing CANTERBURY headgear. not that rubbish kooga thing. Canterbury made it especially to order for Cech with added polymer panels for protecting the area of his fracture. If you put a story up, get the facts right!

    All the pictures I’ve seen of Petr show him wearing Canterbury headgear not Kooga. Don’t be fooled people. Who does Kooga think they are?
