Former Aston Villa and Manchester United goalkeeper Mark Bosnich told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast Show for talkSPORT, about the key trait in Petr Cech he feels will really help Arsenal next season.
The dust has settled on the Czech goalkeeper’s move to the Emirates Stadium and the Australian feels Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has found a piece of the jigsaw he feels has been missing for several years.
“It’s been spoken about the last couple of months, how important it is to have a good goalkeeper to win the title,” he told talkSPORT.
“Petr Cech is a part of the jigsaw that has been missing for Arsenal for quite some years – That really does propel them because he’s got that experience of winning before and he’s a superb goalkeeper.”
Why is Cech’s winning mentality important?
Cech has the experience of having won multiple pieces of silverware with Chelsea, which adds to his impressive experience.
He knows how to get the job done and knows what it takes in the modern era for a side to secure a Premier League title, along with success on various other domestic and European fronts.
He can use that experience to his, and Arsenal’s advantage, so that when the club gets into a good position, they are very difficult for their rivals to claw back.
Why is Cech’s experience important?
Cech’s experience suggests that Arsenal can become a very difficult team to break down.
His position as goalkeeper provides him with the unique advantage of being able to see things from the very back of the team.
From there, he can make adjustments and issue orders which helps the defence and other areas of the side, to retain their shape when they are under pressure.
It’s a difficult transfer to see a downside to.
