Cech: 'My dream is to retire with a trophy in my hands'
- Arsenal defeated Rennes 3-0 at the Emirates to progress to the quarter-finals.
- The veteran goalkeeper admitted that it would be fantastic to end his career on a high.
In his post-match interview, Petr Cech stated that it would be great if Arsenal could win the Europa League this season. Not only would the club ensure a Champions League spot for next season, but it would mean the keeper can wrap up his career on a high note.
"My dream goes on - my dream is to retire with a trophy in my hands. Today we gave ourselves the chance for me to finish like this. There’s a long way to go but with performances like that, we can compete."
Cech has been a mainstay in the cup competitions and it is likely he will feature in the final instead of Bernd Leno if Arsenal make it that far.
The 36-year-old has featured in 17 games this season, keeping seven clean sheets.
