Petr Cech Arsenal goalkeeper announces decision t
Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has announced that he will retire at the end of the season.
The 36-year-old won four Premier League titles, the Champions League and the Europa League during a hugely successful 11-year spell with Chelsea. He moved to Arsenal in 2015 and went onto win another FA Cup in 2017.
Announcing his decision to retire on Twitter on Tuesday morning, the player, who also won 124 caps for the Czech Republic, wrote: “This is my 20th season as a professional player and it is 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 this season.”
Petr Cech, who came into the Premier League in 2004, continued: “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.”
