Arsenal’s latest signing Petr Cech has revealed that the welcome he’s received from the fans and our current players has convinced him that he’s made the right choice, Arsenal.com reports.
Speaking to reporters in his hometown of Prague, Cech spoke of his controversial move across London and cited the welcome he’s received since joining as validation for his decision.
Having spent 11 years at Chelsea and winning every trophy available to him, his signing is potentially the deal of the summer. Our long wait for a world class shot-stopper has also finally been addressed.

“The last few days were really overwhelming,” Cech was quoted as saying by our official club website.
“The welcome messages from new team-mates and Arsenal fans was absolutely unbelievable.

“I realise that not only Arsenal show me their will to have me in the team, but the happiness of supporters and welcome messages from teammates make me think I made the right choice.”
Cech has always carried himself with a touch of class, despite playing for a club that doesn’t know the meaning of the word. His authority and relentless winning attitude also bodes well regarding the ambitions of our club.
The fact that we’ve attracted a player of his calibre will no doubt fill the dressing room with confidence, but we certainly hope that Cech will be followed by a few more additions.
We’ve been left short on too many occasions in recent transfer windows, but a holding midfielder and striker will complete our squad.
