Petr Cech


Chelsea Legend Petr Cech Retired at the Right Time

Chelsea legend Petr Cech played his last professional game during Arsenal’s 4-1 demolition against his old club during the Europa League final. It would have been a bittersweet moment for the 36-year-old. He would have wanted to have ended his time with the Gunners by helping them win something following years of under-achievement but at the same time, he would have been happy to see his old club with whom he spent more than a decade win something, especially as it was his old pal Eden Hazard’s farewell match.

Cech: Facing Chelsea in Europa League Final ‘Too Much’

Speaking ahead of Arsenal’s Europa League semi-final second-leg tie against Valencia, Petr Cech suggested that potentially facing off against Chelsea during the final game of his career could be “too much”. Arsenal defeated Valencia 4-2 in Spain on Thursday and recorded a 7-3 victory on aggregate. They are now set to face off against their English rivals Chelsea during the Europa League final at the end of the month.
