Petr Cech

Arsenal's Petr Cech has no hard feeling towards Manchester United legend Edwin van der Sar who cost him the Champions League with Chelsea in 2008.

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech caught up with former Manchester United adversary Edwin van der Sar, and the pair were full of admiration for each other.

Cech was on the opposing side to Van der Sar in the Premier League on numerous occasions, when the new Arsenal stopper was at Chelsea.

When he joined the Blues, Van der Sar was playing for Fulham, before going onto sign with Manchester United.

It was with United where he won the Champions League in 2008, saving a penalty from Nicolas Anelka in a shootout to deny Chelsea, and Petr Cech, Europe's biggest trophy.

Any sadness Cech felt from that was eventually swept aside by finishing on the winning side in the 2012 final, also a shootout win, against Bayern Munich.

Previously opponents, the pair are now seemingly great pals off the field, catching up in Amsterdam, before the Netherlands take on Czech Republic on Tuesday night.
