Petr Cech has revealed his brilliant reasoning behind choosing shirt number 33 following his move to Arsenal from Chelsea.

The Czech Republic international penned a four-year deal with the north Londoners after his £11m switch to The Emirates from the Premier League champions.

Cech is expected to become Arsene Wenger’s first-choice goalkeeper ahead of the Gunners’s other shot stoppers David Ospina and Wojciech Szczesny.

But the 33-year-old set his sights on becoming part of the Arsenal spine which he explained on his Twitter page was part of his thinking behind his shirt number. of course, he backed up by his decision with some some stats.

Cech went on to add in another post on the social media site.

Cech won four Premier League titles, the Champions League, the Europa League, four FA Cups and three League Cups during his Chelsea career.
