Cech considers International Retirement

Petr Cech has confirmed that he is contemplating the prospect of retiring from international football in order to focus on his club career.

The Czech Republic goalkeeper is about to enter the final few years of his club career. Even though recently goalkeepers have started playing beyond the 38 or even into the 40s, it has largely been made possible due to the lack of international football. Doing away with the international action means that players get the opportunity to recuperate during the off-season. Cech might seem to appreciate a break in the summer, but he has been involved in the Euro 2016 with Czech Republic.

Petr Cech to decide on career

Arsenal and Czech Republic goalkeeper Petr Cech has stated that he will be deciding on whether to retire from international football.

Indeed, the Czech Republic have been eliminated quite early at the Euros, and the Petr Cech might consider that it is high time to give the chance to others.

The Euros 2016 has been the fifth major tournament that Petr Cech has participated in and despite his vast experience, he could not prevent his team from going out of the tournament in the group stage.


Former Chelsea goal stopper, Petr Cech, has won the Premier League Golden Glove award in his first season at the emirates.

The goal keeper kept an amazing 16 clean sheets in the round of matches that makes up the EPL to lift the prize ahead of the hosts of other goal keepers.

His clean sheet in Arsenal’s 4-0 drubbing of relegated Aston Villa in the last EPL game, moved his total one ahead of Manchester United glovesman David De Gea. With United’s final fixture being postponed to Tuesday, it’s not yet known if Cech will win the award outright or be forced to share it with De Gea. The Red Devils goal keeper can’t pass Cech’s total but he can equal if he were to shutout Bournemouth on Tuesday if their final game is finally played, after a bomb scare at Old Trafford led to the postponement.

Will Bendtner move to Copenhagen?

NicklasBendtner was released from his former club Wolfsburg on April 25 of 2016, even though his contract with the German outfit had initially lasted until 2017, his deal was cut short as he failed to make an impact with the team and Wolfsburg announced that they opted to let Bendtner go as he became a free agent.

Shortly after Bendtner was offloaded from Wolfsburg, the CEO of the club Klaus Allofs revealed details concerning the 28 year old Danish player and Klaus Allofs stated that signing NicklasBendtner was a failed experiment from Wolfsburg as he said:

"Signing Bendtner was an experiment and it was not a successful one. Bendtner was a gamble worth taking. He was an extraordinary talent. We were envious of Arsenal when Nicklas was still a young player. But talent alone is not enough. Nicklas is a divisive figure; he is hurting his own career. Of course, we are upset and disappointed that he was unable to fulfill his potential at Wolfsburg."

Cech named Czech footballer of the year

Jack Butland, David de Gea, Kasper Schmeichel and Petr Cech are all of the goal-keepers in the Premier League that have been standing out in this season with impressive performances and these are the players that are already being taken into consideration to be included in the team of the season.

All of those previously mentioned players have made a huge impact with their respective clubs and it’s why they are being considered to be placed in the Premier League squad of the campaign but even though the season is not over, Petr Cech has already started to win awards and recognition after being named for the 8th time as the best player from Czech Republic.

Petr Cech signed with Arsenal in this season but this recent switch of clubs doesn’t seem to have affected him as the veteran player has managed to register 12 clean sheets in 28 matches and he was even able to break a record in the Premier League as he recorded his 170th career clean sheet.

Bilic furious at referee penalty call

West Ham United locked horns with Chelsea on March 19 of the ongoing year with both teams coming into this game with hopes of securing all 3 points but each squad had to eventually settle with 1 point.

This result wasn’t the one that the head coach of West Ham wanted to see as his team had the lead from the start of the game after Manuel Lanzini opened up the scoreboard at the 17th minute but Cesc Fabregas managed to tie the game at the 48th minute.

Petr Cech ruled out

Manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that goalkeeper Petr Cech will be out for around 3 to 4 weeks.

This rules him out of the season at a crucial time, while he will also miss the second leg of the Champions League game against Barcelona. The former Chelsea goalkeeper suffered a calf injury in the 2-1 loss against Swansea. He is expected to be unavailable for the FA Cup replay against Hull City as well. Wenger learnt about the long-term nature about the injury after the loss. He even went on to claim that the injury to Cech had a major dent in the confidence of players.

Lampard embarks on a TV career

Frank Lampard is regarded to be as the best or one of the best players who has worn the Chelsea jersey and the impact that he has made in the Premier League club will never be forgotten as the Englishman cemented his place in the history-books of Chelsea by becoming the top goal-scorer of the club and made over 400 appearances.

In this period of time, Lampard was able to lift a number of titles including: Champions League and Premier League just to name a few of them.

It’s been over 1 year since Lampard officially announced his retirement from playing at the international stage and his time at club level is almost over as well. Lampard has a contract with New York City which extends until July 2017 and it’s very likely that the Englishman will decide to hang up his boots and retire all together.

Per: take advantage of Cech’s brilliance

Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker believes that the club should take advantage of Petr Cech’s brilliance by reclaiming the league title after a long time. Arsenal have not won the Premier League since the 2003-04 season.

They managed to achieve this title victory by staying unbeaten throughout the season. It is a feat that has never been managed since then. Despite this achievement, Arsenal have been mocked in recent years for their failure to achieve anything close to a title challenge. However, they appear to be in pole position to end this trophy drought.

The Premier League is a realistic target for Arsenal

When it comes to being on the spotlight of the media, in the world of football it’s usually the forwards or the more offensive players the one that receive all the attention as well as the praise and there are other positions in the game which don’t receive as much praise or attention.

While Olivier Giroud and MesutOzil are out in the offensive lines taking charge of the attacking duties of Arsenal, PetrCech is on the other side of the pitch doing what needs to be done in order to keep his team from conceding goals and even though it’s been less than 1 year since Cech signed for Arsenal for a transfer fee of only €10 million, he has already made a colossal impact in the team.
