Petr Cech is one of the finest goalkeepers in the world currently and has been ruling the world with his magnificient goalkeeping for almost a decade now. The Czech Republic international who had arrived in Premier League in 2004 at Chelsea has beena phenomenon in world football.

After spending 11 seasons at Stamford Bridge, the legendary custodian decided to part ways with Chelsea FC this season as he was sold to city and traditional rivals Arsenal for 10 million pounds.

Petr Cech was relegated to the reserve bench under Jose Mourinho last season when on loan keeper Thibaut Courtios had arrived at the club permanently. Courtois’ excellence under the bar overshadowed the maestro even though he had still a lot of years left under his belt. Thus, the club and the player amicably decided to part ways.

Since joining the Gunners this summer Cech has been in stupendous form, and as half of the season has passed, Arsenal are standing hight at the top of the table, thanks to some stellar glove work from Cech.

 

As half of the season has passed Petr Cech finally spoke about why he left the Blues and joined Arsenal this summer.

Speaking to The Mirror, Cech said: “It was not an easy decision but I always wanted to go to a team which could win.

“If I didn’t believe that I was going to a team which could win then I don’t know why I would come.

“I play football, not to only enjoy it and I love the challenge of playing and competing with the best players, but I want to have the chance to win games.”

Cech, who won four league titles with Chelsea sounded confident that Arsene Wenger’s men can win the title this season.

“I believe this team has the qualities to win games and hopefully we will manage to go all the way in the league,” Cech said.

“It’s a very difficult and long run but I believe this team has the capabilities of doing it.

“We are in a good position, we are in the mix of the teams who will play to win the title so we want to stay in that position for as long as possible and every time we have a chance to improve our position then we would love to do it.”
