Petr Cech believes it is an exciting time to join Arsenal.
The Czech Republic goalkeeper moved to the Gunners from Chelsea on Monday, ending his 11-year spell at Stamford Bridge where he won 13 major honours, including the Champions League.
Now in north London, Cech is confident that he can help Arsenal add to their back-to-back FA Cup triumphs.
"Especially in 2015, the team had a very good run and you can see how many talented players came through and played really well"
“It is [an exciting time] because you could see clearly that this team has a big potential,” the 33-year-old told Arsenal Player. “Especially in 2015, the team had a very good run and you can see how many talented players came through and played really well.
“I believe that towards the end of the season, they found the balance and played really good football as well as finding the winning touch where they found three points in important games.
“It’s just a pity that the season lasts all year. You have to start and finish well, which was Arsenal’s problem last season - the points they dropped at the start of the season were costly for them in the title race at the end.
“Winning back-to-back FA Cups is a great achievement and I hope that the team can pick up where it started in 2015 and carry that on during the whole season.”
