Thank God that Arsenal have finally confirmed the acquisition of Petr Cech from Chelsea OFFICIALLY. We know we are all used to waiting for weeks on end for Arsenal.com to confirm any transfers that we have all known about for ages, but it became reality today!
Arsène Wenger said on the official Arsenal website: “Petr Cech is a player that I have admired for a long time and I am very pleased that he has decided to join us. He has proven over many seasons that he is one of the outstanding keepers in the world and he will add great strength to our squad.”
It is truly fantastic news, and for me it is the first of many wins that Arsene Wenger will have over his arch-nemesis Jose Mourinho, and the Portugese bus conductor will live to rue this day for many years to come. Cech is also very pleased to be here at the Emirates: “I’m really excited about joining Arsenal Football Club and can’t wait to join up for pre-season.” he said. “I have the same commitment to football, the same motivation and the same hunger for success as I had at the beginning of my career, and I love the challenges brought by the top quality players you face while playing in the Premier League. When Arsène Wenger spoke to me about his ambitions for this club, and how he saw me as part of this team, the decision was clear.”
So thats one BIG ONE down, now we just need the beast of a DM and the best striker in the world. Thankyou very much!
