Arsenal have offered Petr Cech the chance to take up a position on the coaching staff when he retires in the summer, according to a publication with a name that rhymes with The Bun.
In January, the 36-year-old, who is already undertaking his coaching badges, announced he’ll be hanging up his gloves when his three-year contract at the Emirates ends.
After a glittering career that has seen him win every available trophy in English and European football, his talent and experience are obviously in demand.
Former club Chelsea, for whom he played for 11 years, are also said to be interested in acquiring his services, either as a coach or an ambassador.
Given his connection to the Blues – Roman Abramovich likes him so much he even sanctioned the move to Arsenal when Cech pushed for it – you’d not be surprised if he returned to West London rather than stick it out at London Colney.
Whatever he decides to do, he’ll likely be a success. Able to speak five languages and also a keen drummer, he’s better prepared than most footballers for life outside the game.
Especially if he wants to become a drummer who can sing in different languages.
