Petr Cech admits Arsenal have hunger to win more trophies

Petr Cech

The former Chelsea goalkeeper won his first piece of silverware at the weekend and is keen to add to it this season.

New Arsenal signing Petr Cech has admitted that winning the Community Shield has given the club the hunger to win more trophies this season, as per the club’s official website.

The experienced custodian played a role in his new employers’ 1-0 victory over his old team at Wembley at the weekend and will be a key man in the North London outfit’s quest for major honours in 2015-16.

Cech, who has had a successful campaign at Stamford Bridge, has claimed that is not satisfied with the trophies he won with the Blues and wants to add to his haul at the Emirates Stadium.

“A lot of times, people say that if you win a major trophy you get satisfied and stop working. I think it’s the other way around,” Arsenal’s official website quote Cech as saying.

“Once you win a big trophy, it’s such an amazing feeling of achievement and accomplishment that you want to live it again. This group now knows how to win trophies and they enjoy it very much.

“You can see the celebration every time we win trophies, and everybody speaks about it. I’m sure that everybody wants to at least repeat that this year.”

Arsenal have won back-to-back FA Cups but have not been crowned as English champions since 2003-04.

The Gunners played some excellent football last season for prolonged periods but over the course of the campaign they were not consistent enough to finish top of the pile.

Arsene Wenger’s men have been impressive in pre-season and will hope to start 2015-16 with a bang, with the North Londoners set to start their campaign against West Ham this weekend.
