The arrival of Petr Čech sparked a flurry of tweets and comments from various players and thousands of fans, but one striking thing was the admiration shared by fellow goalkeepers.

The new signing is already smart enough to play himself into the hearts of Arsenal fans, calling Arsenal hero David Seaman a goalkeeping legend after ‘Safe Hands’ had expressed his delight at the signing.

Seaman, who won nine major honours during his time at Arsenal, has said that Čech could make the difference between winning the Premier League and finishing as runner-up next season.

Beyond Arsenal circles, Italian legend Gianluigi Buffon wished Čech luck on the move.

It is incredible that Čech is held in such high regard by his peers, and speaks volumes for what a quality signing Arsenal have made.
