Petr Cech recently completed his move to Arsenal from Chelsea (via the BBC), in one of the more controversial transfers in recent history. You rarely see players make the move from one major rival to the other, especially in a direct transfer.
There have been a handful of players who have played for both Arsenal and Chelsea over the years however, with Cech the sixth of his kind.
Below we’ve listed the other five stars to have turned out for both clubs:
5) Ashley Cole
Our former left-back became one of the most hated players in Arsenal’s history when he joined Chelsea in 2006, with the manner in which he left the club leaving fans furious.
His success made it all the more painful, as despite our hatred of him he was unquestionably a fantastic left-back. He is arguably the best left-back in English history, and was certainly one of the best in the Premier League for a time.
It helps that he is clearly a despicable character, but it was still a blow at the time.
