We may have signed Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette this summer, but Petr Cech believes another addition could prove just as important.
Jens Lehmann’s arrival as a first-team coach caught many people by surprise, but our goalkeeper is convinced he will make a big difference.
“It is kind of exciting for me,” Cech told Arsenal Player. “I used to play against him, now obviously he will be on my side.
“He’s with the team and sometimes with the goalkeepers as well, so that’s good and you can have the exchange of experience and the way you do things.
“I believe that with his experience and his career, he has a lot to offer. We had met a few times out of the pitch but mainly we knew each other by facing each other.
“It’s a completely different thing when you speak to someone as a respected opponent or when you speak to someone on your side, as a coach who tries to improve you and helps you as well.”
