Cech signs for ice hockey team

Former Chelsea and Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has signed for ice hockey team Guildford Phoenix.

Cech, who retired from playing football in the summer and rejoined Chelsea in an off-field role, joined the fourth tier British ice hockey side as a netminder and admitted he is thrilled to make the switch to a new sport.

“I am delighted to have the opportunity to play with the Phoenix to get match experience,” said Cech in an interview available on Guildford Phoenix’s official website.

“I hope I can help this young team to achieve their goals for the season and try to win as many games as possible when I have the chance to play.

“After 20 years of professional football, this is going to be a wonderful experience for me to play the game I loved to watch and play as a kid.”

Cech won the Premier League a total of four times and the Champions League trophy with Chelsea. The 37-year-old is also Czech Republic’s most-capped player, with 124 senior appearances.
