Petr Čech talks about missing daughter's birth and more
Chelsea F.C. goalkeeper Petr Čech loves being a dad to daughter Adela Cechova, 7 weeks, but he wishes that he could have been present at her birth. However, due to work commitments, the 25-year-old was not able to make it back to the Czech Republic for the big day.
It was the best day of my life and at the same time the saddest. I was so happy that I was a father and so proud of my wife but I was upset that I missed the birth. But my daughter decided she was coming in the middle of the night and there was nothing I could do.
I was in Liverpool and if I could have got a flight back to the Czech Republic, I would have missed the birth anyway, so I just had to wait on the phone.
