Cech makes trophy plea to Arsenal teammates

Petr Cech has pleaded with Arsenal teammates to give him a special retirement present.

Cech is retiring at the end of the season after 14 trophies in a glittering 15-year English career with Chelsea and now the Gunners, and wants to go out on a high after the May 29 Europa League final with one last medal.

The 36-year-old, who should start Thursday's last-32 tie first leg against BATE Borisov in Belarus, said: “Of course, that would be an ideal scenario for me to finish my career.

“We prepare every day for every competition and this is what we are aiming for, we try to win every game and progress step by step and as a club it is important for us to try and go as far as possible. Winning the Europa League is a great memory for everyone involved and secondly it can book you a place in the Champions League so there is a lot to play for."
