Petr Cech's first Arsenal interview: The reason why I joined Arsenal


New Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech says the project of boss Arsene Wenger was the main reason why he joined the club.

The 33-year-old leaves Chelsea after spending 11 years at Stamford Bridge and will take over from David Ospina as Arsenal's regular goalkeeper.

He signed a four-year contract and could face his former club when the two teams face in next August's Community Shield at Wembley.

"It is exciting," Cech told the club's official website.

"I first came to the Premier League a long time ago and I still love playing in the Premier League and the challenges it poses with the great players and great teams you have to face every week.

"Arsenal are a team that challenge for the top and definitely matches my ambitions and personal motivation.

"I believe at this time of my career I have made a really good choice and will have the success that I hope to have.

"[Why Arsenal?] I would say the approach.

"In the first meeting we had, I spoke to the manager, Arsene Wenger, and obviously it was a big difference because I am as hungry as ever and have the same motivation and commitment to win trophies as I had 10 or 15 years ago and as a kid.

"Having spoken to him, I believe I will find a team that wants to be successful and wants to challenge the best in Europe. It is an exciting project for me."
