So Petr Cech will play one final game for Arsenal in the Final of the Europa League before he finally hangs up his gloves for good, and you could not have picked a better opponent than his old club Chelsea to complete the fairytale ending to his illustrious career.
The Gunners fully deserved to go through after destroying Valencia in the cauldron of the Mestalla, and Cech really beieves that this dream will come true. “Well, you have to believe in your dream and that’s the only way. To work hard is one thing, but you really have to believe dreams can come true otherwise it might not. I’ve always been doing it in my life and my career believing that it might come true. Throughout my career I actually did some of those dreams and my last dream as a professional footballer is to win the last final. I’m very happy we went through this difficult test today and we really deserve to go through.
“I think we are on the verge of making history for Arsenal Football Club. It’s such a fantastic football club and I feel like our supporters and everybody connected to the club deserve the joy from winning a European final so hopefully we can do the last step and win it for them. They’ve been supporting this club with all their energy and they’ve been waiting long, so hopefully we can end this wait.”
Petr has won both the European Champions League as well as the Europa League with Chelsea, so everything is set up for him to complete the best fairytale ending he could ever have hoped for. He is just 90 minutes away from achieving his dream.
Good Luck Petr!
