Petr Cech has decided to hang his gloves at the end of the season, this is according to emerging reports.
He laid bare this decision on Tuesday via one of his social media handles, after announcing that he will no longer be playing football after a 20-year profession career.
“This is my 20th season as a professional player and it has been 20 years since I signed my first professional contract, so it feels like the right time to announce that I will retire at the end of the season.
“Having played 15 years in the Premier League, and won every single trophy possible, I feel like I have achieved everything I set out to achieve.
“I will continue to work hard at Arsenal to hopefully win one more trophy this season, then I am looking forward to seeing what life holds for me off the pitch.”
The 36-year-old shot-stopper joined Arsenal in the summer of 2015 but before then, he had spent 10 years with Chelsea in West London.
He kept the most clean sheets in the Premier League history, hopefully Emery and the Arsenal back-line will allow him better his own record and he’s won every trophy possible during his time in England on the domestic & European stage.
Happy retirement Czech.
