Former Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has taken to social networking site Twitter to wish Petr Cech the best of luck at Arsenal.
The Gunners have recruited the Czech Republic international goalkeeper from their Premier League rivals Chelsea FC on a long-term contract for an undisclosed fee, as announced on the club’s official website.
The former Rennes star made over 400 appearances during 11 years at Stamford Bridge, winning the Premier League title four times and the Champions League once.
The veteran goalkeeper, who also won the FA Cup on four occasions with the Blues, claimed the Premier League Golden Glove award thrice.
Reina was Cech’s rival for a number of years when the former was at Liverpool, and he hopes that the Czech Republic international succeeds at Arsenal.
Congrats on the move big man and all the best for the new challenge!!!keep up the race for the clean sheets!! https://t.co/oZk8AVdHfM— Pepe Reina (@PReina25) July 10, 2015

Cech may be 33 years of age, but he is one of the best goalkeepers in the world and a truly world-class player.
Wojciech Szczesny is the Gunners’ first choice between the posts at the moment, and David Ospina is his back-up.
However, Cech will slot into the Arsenal starting line-up rightaway, and he is going to be a key player in the Gunners’ Premier League title challenge next season.
