Arsène Wenger: Petr Cech can strengthen belief of team.


Arsenal boss Arsène Wenger is convinced his new recruit Petr Cech can help “strengthen the belief” of the Gunners.

The 33-year-old secured a move from Stamford Bridge to the Emirates after spending 11 successful years with the west London side.

And, Wenger, who has been delighted with the deal, says the Czech international still has the hunger to win trophies.

“It was a very, very tough decision [to buy Cech] because I have two great goalkeepers. I think Cech can make them better as well,” he told Arsenal Player.

“He has huge experience and the fact that he has won more big trophies can strengthen the belief of the team. That can help them to develop and that’s what I expect from him.

“You always want to improve the experience level of your squad and I thought he could help us gain something on that front.

“I still think he has a huge hunger. When I saw him with Chelsea last year he was always convincing and I’m happy that we could do it. His kind of knowledge and experience can help us.”
