Arsenal duo Kieran Gibbs and Theo Walcott have revealed that Petr Cech‘s initiation song following his arrival was the best either of them have seen since the concept was introduced at the club, The Evening Standard reports.
Cech, who is publicly perceived as a mature character, seemingly put a lot of thought behind his performance and certainly impressed Gibbs and Walcott.
Speaking at an Adidas event, the England duo have been at the club long enough to have witnessed a number of initiations performed by new signings and were certainly in agreement as to which one was the best.

“Petr basically went round each table and did a rap, involving each of the players sitting at the table – and he included the boss – it was amazing,” Walcott was quoted as saying in the publication.
“There is a video of it but I don’t think it’ll ever go out…”
