Petr Cech may be an Arsenal player but the goalkeeper hasn’t forgotten some of his fond Chelsea memories despite making the controversial switch across London.

The Czech Republic international ended his first season as a Gunners player without any silverware after Arsene Wenger’s side made premature exits in the Champions League and the FA Cup this year.

Even Cech’s experience of being part of all four of Chelsea title-winning squads couldn’t help keep Arsenal’s bid to win a first Premier League trophy since 2004 stay on track in the second half of the campaign.

And deprived of silverware, the 33-year-old reflected on Chelsea’s memorable Champions League triumph in 2012 which saw Roberto Di Matteo’s side beat Bayern Munich on penalties after coming from 1-0 down in normal time at the Allianz Arena.

Cech posted the above photo on his Instagram page and wrote: “19th of May will always be special ! @uefachampionsleague #anniversary”

The Czech shot stopper made the £11m move to Arsenal from Chelsea last summer after he was deemed surplus to requirements by axed Blues boss Jose Mourinho.
