Chelsea used their official Instagram account to wish Petr Cech a happy 35th birthday over the weekend
He may play for one of their local rivals these days, but Chelsea clearly continue to hold Petr Cech in very high regard.
The Czech goalkeeper left Chelsea to sign for Arsenal in the summer of 2015 after being deemed to be surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge by then manager Jose Mourinho.
Cech has since established himself as Arsenal’s number one goalkeeper and is set to line up for the Gunners in their final home game of the season on Sunday afternoon against Everton.
The goalkeeper celebrated his 35th birthday on Saturday and Chelsea used the club’s official Instagram account to send their best wishes to the shot-stopper.
The club posted the picture above of Cech celebrating winning the Champions League final back in 2012 on the app and wrote the caption: “Happy birthday to Chelsea legend Petr Cech! 🎈🎉🏆#CFC”
Chelsea are preparing to celebrate winning the Premier League title in front of their home fans on Sunday afternoon when they host Sunderland at Stamford Bridge.
Cech is likely to line up against his former club when the Blues take on Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley next weekend.
