Shock news, Cech to retire at the end of the season

Injuries, News

Petr Cech tweeted this morning that this will be his last season in the Premier League.

The 36-year-old shot stopper revealed:

“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. 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 (just ONE more?) trophy this season, then I am looking forward to seeing what life holds for me off the pitch…”

Cech has been replaced as Arsenal’s number one keeper by German Bernd Leno, and has been limited to a few games this season, so it seems like a good time for Cech to hang up his gloves and helmet.

There’s no denying Cech’s best years were at Chelsea, but he’s been a professional from day one at Arsenal and good luck to the little fella. There’s no news as yet to what he will do once he’s retired, guess there’s a chance he could take up a place behind the scenes at Arsenal. Watch this space for news on that as we get it.
