Petr Cech joined Arsenal three days ago. He decided to leave Chelsea to play in red and white shirt. The goalkeeper says that Arsenal can be a challenger for the Premier League title in the next campaign. He adds that Arsenal showed potential with back-to-back FA Cup final victories.

The goalie signed a four-year contract with Arsene Wenger's team. He decided to end an 11-year journey with Chelsea as he made a £11m move from one stadium in London to another. The speculations about Cech's move started when he was moved to the bench by José Mourinho. Petr decided, that in his age, he can't be a secondary player for any team, so he chose Arsenal to be his next destination.
