Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech retires this summer and according to Sky Sports he is expected to return to Chelsea as their new sporting director.
The news provides Arsenal with a problem. Cech’s final game as a Gunner will be against Chelsea in next week’s Uefa Europa League final.
In response to the reports the 37-year-old said on Twitter: “Despite the news today as I had already said to everybody before, I’ll make a decision about my future after the last game. Now my sole focus is to win the EL with @Arsenal.”
Cech has played throughout the Europa League campaign for Arsenal but could Bernd Leno now be set to start in between the sticks in Baku?
Metro reports that Arsenal fans are demanding that German keeper Leno is selected for the final on 29 May.
