Arsenal goalkeeper Cech happy facing Chelsea in Europa League final

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech welcomes the chance to play Chelsea in the Europa League final.

The match in Baku will be Cech's final game ahead of retirement.

After helping the Gunners defeat Valencia on Thursday night, Cech spoke before Chelsea's shootout win against Eintracht Frankfurt.

Cech said, "I have no preferences who we play in the final.

"The team who manages to get to the final always deserves it. It would be a remarkable end to my career if I play a European final against my former team."
