Petr Cech wants to claim top spot

The Czech Republic goalkeeper won the league title with Chelsea last season and says he intends to repeat the feat with Arsenal this time around

Petr Cech will now be Arsenal’s new number 1 when the new season kicks off and despite still being very new to the club and attracting a lot of interest from former player’s for his age and waning powers and influence, the former Stade Rennais man is someone who has a winning mentality and wants to bring it to his new teammates.

Cech says that securing a top spot with the Gunners is all that matters to him and is confident that the club can achieve this feat.

‘I have to say that winning the FA Cup is a great thing for the confidence of the team, and everyone involved with Arsenal Football Club,’ Cech told the Gunners’ official matchday programme.

‘I hope that this is a platform to build on and I believe that this season we can gradually progress and challenge for the top spots.

‘A lot of people say that once you win something big, the motivation goes down. It actually works the other way round.

‘You know what it takes in terms to win it and you want to repeat it.’
