Petr Cech has today announced he will retire at the end of the season after spending 15 years in the Premier League with Chelsea and current side Arsenal.

Cech won 11 trophies including four Premier League titles and the Champions League during his 11-year stay at Stamford Bridge before joining Arsenal for £10million on a four-year deal in 2015, where he has won three trophies (One FA Cup and two Community Shield).

Cech wrote on Twitter: “This is my 20th season as a professional player and it has been 20 years since I signed my first professional contract, so it feels like the right time to announce that I will retire at the end of this season.

“Having played 15 years in the Premier League, and won every single trophy possible, I feel like I have achieved everything I set out to achieve.

“I will continue to work hard at Arsenal to hopefully win one more trophy this season, then I am looking forward to seeing what life holds for me off the pitch.”

Cech joined Chelsea in 2004 as a 22-year-old and played a crucial role in helping Chelsea win our first league title in the Premier League era in 2005.

He went on to win three more top-flight titles with the Blues as well as four FA Cups and the League Cup on three occasions during his time at Chelsea.
