The Arsenal manager states that it was a really hard decision for him to bring the former Czech Republic international to the Emirates
With two really good goalkeepers already in the squad, it was a bit surprising to see Arsenal pay Chelsea 10 million pounds to capture Petr Cech who wanted to leave Stamford Bridge this summer following the emergence of Thibaut Courtois whose performances led Cech to be relegated to the bench.
And Wenger took the opportunity to bring Cech to the club despite knowing that he had two really good shot stoppers at the club already.
“It was a very, very tough decision because I have two great goalkeepers. I think Cech can make them better as well,” Wenger told the club’s official website.
“He has huge experience and the fact that he has won more big trophies can strengthen the belief of the team. That can help them to develop and that’s what I expect from him.
“You always want to improve the experience level of your squad and I thought he could help us gain something on that front. I still think he has a huge hunger. When I saw him with Chelsea last year he was always convincing and I’m happy that we could do it. His kind of knowledge and experience can help us.”
