Cech dreaming of ending career with Europa League glory

Cech dreaming of ending career with Europa League glory

15 Mar 2019, 07:20

Czech Republic goalkeeper Petr Cech says winning the Europa League with Arsenal would be the perfect end to his career.

Cech, who is retiring at the end of the season, kept a clean sheet as Arsenal beat Rennes 3-0 on Thursday to move into the quarter-finals 4-3 on aggregate.

The 36-year-old goalkeeper may have lost his Premier League place to Bernd Leno but Cech has started six Europa League matches in Arsenal's run to the last eight.

Unai Emery's side will find out their next opponents when the draw is made on Friday and Cech is hopeful the Europa League title can prove a fitting final chapter for his career.

Dream

"My dream goes on - my dream is to retire with a trophy in my hands," Cech told Arsenal's website. "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."

Arsenal became only the second team since the rebranding of the Europa League to progress after losing the first leg of a knockout tie 3-1.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang opened the scoring in the fifth minute then crossed for Ainsley Maitland-Niles to level the tie on aggregate, the Gabon international later scoring a second-half clincher.
