Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech reveals favourite save of his career

Arsenal and former Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has revealed that his favourite save ever is that of his 2012 Champions League penalty save against Bayern Munich’s Arjen Robben.

The veteran goalkeeper was this week awarded with the Guinness World Record for the most Premier League clean-sheets (181 from 373 starts).

The 34-year-old said: “Obviously if you face a penalty in the Champions League final, in extra time, you know if you concede then it’s all over.”

Despite being no.1 at Arsenal, Cech cannot ignore his glory days with rivals Chelsea.

“You know your dream to win the Champions League is all gone, I have to take this penalty save.

“It’s one of those saves you will always remember.”

Cech has been a Premier League goalkeeper for twelve years, 11 of which were at Stamford Bridge before moving to North-London with Arsenal in 2015.

A decision had to be made at Chelsea when Thibaut Courtios was knocking on the door for regular first team football. The Blues could not afford to lose out on such a promising goalkeeper they had to take a gamble which saw Cech time at the club come to an end.
