Arsene Wenger says Petr Cech will help “strengthen the belief” of the Arsenal team.
The Czech international goalkeeper spent 11 successful years at Chelsea before moving across London and Wenger is delighted to have him in his squad.
“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,” the manager 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.”
