Former Chelsea manager: Petr Cech will perform even better at Arsenal


Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech will perform "even better" at Arsenal according to former Chelsea boss Glenn Hoddle.

A reserve in Jose Mourinho's squad last season, the 33-year-old is expected to feature regularly under new manager Arsene Wenger.

He joins the Gunners after completing a £10m move from Stamford Bridge.

"Cech will give Arsenal an opportunity now to become more solid," Hoddle told Kicca.

"It'll be a fresh challenge for him, he'll be excited about keeping clean sheets. There was a familiarity about Chelsea and he wants to play.

"He wants to stay in London, I know that for a fact. He's staying in London. So he's going to be a happy bunny off the pitch. If you're a happy bunny off the pitch you'll perform even better.

"So there's a lot of positives for Arsenal.

"I do believe he's a world-class goalkeeper and he's got a few years left at that level. Arsenal have really, really got themselves the start of the spine.

"They've still got a couple of others I think they need to buy but I think if I'm an Arsenal fan, and I'm not, I'd be very, very happy with that position.

"I think it's a real, real feather in Arsene's cap. They'll be hoping to go far in every competition and the depth they've got in that position is immense."
