In a short interview with Arsenal Player, Petr Cech spoke about how much he’s looking forward to training with the team and reiterated the importance of a strong start to the season.

The Czech international has spoken about getting used to winning and developing a winner’s mentality. He’s excited to get started, meet his new colleagues and begin a new chapter in his life. He’s also looking forward to travelling to the Far East on our tour of Asia, meeting the fans and getting a couple of games under his belt as a Gunner.

As good as travelling to a humid country can be for fitness levels, pre-season tours are a great way of encouraging the team to bond. There’s a lot of down time and learning about each other, as well as meeting the fans and getting a feel for the size of the club.

I’m glad Cech is looking forward to experiencing this and getting to know the team, as I’m sure they’re looking forward to meeting him.
