Football Hall of Famer Graeme Souness: 'There's no doubting Cech's goalkeeping'
Petr Cech was branded Man of the Match after he denied quite a number of shots from Everton players. The veteran has been heavily criticised this season for struggling when playing out from the back. On Sunday he, however, slienced all critics. Former Scottish footballer and manager, English and Scottish Football Hall of Famer Graeme Souness explained to Sky Sports how Cech is improving under Unai Emery.
"What this manager has done to Petr Cech is, he’s increased his workload and his thought process.
"A big part of being a top goalkeeper is decision making. Now on top of all that this manager is asking him to make equally critical decisions with his feet.
"He’s now thinking 'do I put my foot through the ball or am I tempted to play out from the back. If so where do make the pass?' So he’s doubled his workload. Old dog, new tricks comes to mind but there’s no doubting his goalkeeping in the old sense.
"He’s up there with the very best still."
