Arsenal Goalkeeper Petr Cech Announces Retirement

Former Chelsea and current Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech took to social media to confirm that he will retire at the end of the current Premier League season.
 
 
The 36-year-old has fallen out of favour at the club and has been forced to play second-fiddle to German international shot-stopper Bernd Leno for much of the season.
 
The Czech Republic goalkeeper took to his official Twitter account to publicise the details of his imminent retirement. 
 
"This is my 20th season as a professional player and it has been 20 years since I signed my first professional contract, so it feels like the right time to announce that I will retire at the end of the season," he said on his official twitter account.
 
"Having played 15 years in the Premier League, and won every single trophy possible, I feel like I have achieved everything I set out to achieve.
 
"I will continue to work hard at Arsenal to hopefully win one more trophy this season, then I am looking forward to seeing what life holds for me off the pitch," he concluded.
 
 
Cech has made 12 appearances for the Gunners in all competitions this season and last featured in the Premier League in Arsenal's 2-0 victory against Watford in September.
 
The retired Czech international has won 15 trophies in 11 years with Chelsea, and added another three after moving to the Gunners in 2015.
 
Cech has the record for the most clean-sheets (24) maintained in a single season (2004/05), while also holding the record for the most-ever clean sheets kept in the Premier League (202).
