Kieran Gibbs jumped on the welcome wagon on Monday to welcome new goalkeeper Petr Cech to the squad.

The left-back tweeted:

The defender started playing for Arsenal the same year Cech joined Chelsea (2004), but he was only 14-years-old. The 25-year-old has therefore grown up watching the Czech international play for our rivals and now he’s a Gunner, it must be quite strange.

However, it’ll also be different having such an experienced pair of hands guarding the goal and together with the strong defense we’ve developed over recent seasons, it’s bound to be a match made in heaven.
