Chelsea chief Cech: Arsenal experience an eye opener

Chelsea's new technical and performance advisor Petr Cech says his two years with Arsenal were an invaluable experience.

Cech admits the Gunners' overhaul after Arsene Wenger's departure was an eye opener.

He said, "It was a very valuable experience for me to go to Arsenal and see how things are run there, how different the environment was. At Chelsea we were the club that lived with a lot of changes, manager changes, and Arsenal was the club where there were no changes for so many years so it adds to the experience and you see things differently.

"Then everything changed at Arsenal so new people came in place last season, a new manager, so this was interesting to see how that evolution works and you can take ideas, what works and doesn't work and what might work better."
