Petr Cech promises to bounce back

The former Czech International insists that he will come back stronger after enduring a humiliating debut for Arsenal against West Ham on Sunday.

Cech switched from Chelsea to rival club Arsenal in a £10 million summer deal, which was seen as a move to provide the Gunners with an edge in the Premier League title challenge. However, the fancied title contenders faced the worst possible opening day of the new season as their side suffered a shock home defeat to West Ham yesterday.

”First game like this was not in the script – Mistake and no points but tomorrow is another day to get ready for the next game ,” Cech posted on twitter.

After the game, manager Arsene Wenger came in support for Cech, saying that the goalkeeper alone cannot be blamed for Arsenal’s defeat.

“The way we conceded the goal just before half-time, with the experience we have in our team, is difficult to understand, but it was a collective lapse, not only him,” said Wenger.

“We have enough experience at the back. If you look at our back-line I think the youngest one is 30. I couldn’t see too many convincing individual performances so it is difficult to single one out. When you are a professional footballer, you have to face your responsibilities. We have to look at ourselves. We were not good enough, we were not convincing and that’s basically it.”
