Chelsea star 'could have been a Gunner'

Published Add your comment

Chelsea’s star goalkeeper Peter Cech has opened up about nearly signing for Arsenal, as Gunners manager Arsene Wenger faces a goalkeeper injury crisis in the race for the title.

“Before I went to Rennes I was watched by Arsenal, but when I couldn't get a work permit the situation was missed,” the Czech international told reporters.


“At the last minute I think the person who was the chief scout at Arsenal didn't think I was good enough for the English league. So in the end it didn't happen.”

With Wojciech Szczesny and Lukasz Fabianski both injured for Arsenal, Wenger is being forced to use out of form Manuel Almunia as starting goal keeper. The Gunners manager will no doubt be stung by the possibility of being able to have Cech available to him during what has been labeled a goalkeeping crisis for Arsenal.
