Arsenal keeper Cech thanks Palop after Rennes Euro draw

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech is delighted with their Europa League draw against Rennes.

Cech played for Rennes for two seasons, having joined in 2002 from Sparta Prague, before he moved to Chelsea.

Andre Palop, the former Sevilla keeper, was part of yesterday's draw and Cech tweeted: "When the goalkeeper makes the draw, good things happen!"

And he did so in three languages to celebrate the pairing - in his last season in the game.
