Cech celebrates 35th birthday with throwback picture from start of incredible career

Date Posted,May 20, 2017

Petr Cech has celebrated his 35th birthday with an epic throwback picture to the very start of his career.

The Arsenal goalkeeper made his league debut 18 years ago in his native homeland and it is still going strong in the Premier League.

He will be in goal for the Gunners against Everton on Sunday as they bid to finish in the top four.

Ahead of the clash, Cech posted a brilliant throwback showing a fresh-faced goalkeeper – and thanked fans for their messages.

It comes after boss Arsene Wenger tipped his No.1 to emulate Edwin van der Sar and play until he is 40.

“I think Petr has a few more years left,” said Wenger.

“You have examples like Edwin van der Sar, who had similar stature, who played until 40 and played until 40 with top-quality performances.

“He has recently been very sharp. We have three world-class goalkeepers in my opinion and that maintains the focus of everybody. Petr has recently had some great performances.

“He’s highly focused and very professional. You do not make a career like he has made by coincidence.

“All that of course is always a consequence of the attitude to be a winner, the attitude every day to push yourself.

“Overall I think it’s fantastic to have people like that at the club.”
