Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech pursuing musical career

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech is ready to pursue a musical career.

The 36-year-old, who joined the Gunners in 2015, has confirmed that he will hang up his gloves when the current campaign comes to a close.

And the former Czech Republic international, who is also a part-time drummer, has revealed he intends to release a charity single alongside Queen member Roger Taylor.

The pair's song, titled 'That's Football', will be available to download next week and will raise funds for the Willow Foundation - a UK-based organisation founded by former Arsenal goalkeeper Bob Wilson which provides special days for seriously ill young adults.

Cech announced: "To mark my retirement, the legendary Roger Taylor and myself thought it would be fun to do a song to raise money for the wonderful Willow Foundation."
