In his glittering Stamford Bridge playing career Cech won every major club honour possible. He surpassed Peter Bonetti’s Chelsea clean-sheet record and became our highest overseas appearance maker.
In his first season, 2004/05, Cech registered a record 24 Premier League clean sheets game as we advance to the title conceding just 15 goals along the way. He was equally so impressive the following year as we maintained our stand as the country’s best team with the toughest defence.
He sustained a fractured skull during the 2006/07 season to keep a clean sheet in the first FA Cup final at the new Wembley as we defeated Manchester United 1-0. He tasted further success in that competition in 2009, 2010 – when he saved a penalty in the final – and 2012, when he made a remarkable stop to deny Liverpool’s Andy Carroll preserved our advantage.
Petr Czech’s finest hour in a Chelsea shirt was undoubtedly the Champions League final in Munich.
Having saved an Arjen Robben penalty during extra-time, Cech made 2 astonishing save during the shoot-out, paving the way for Didier Drogba’s deciding kick.
He won further continental silverware in 2013 in the shape of the Europa League, and although he was less involved in his final season, 2014/15, he also won the Premier League title for the fourth time and kept a clean sheet in the League Cup victory over Tottenham at Wembley.
Having made 494 appearances for the blues and won 13 major honours, Cech left for Arsenal. The last appearance of his venerable career was the Europa League final last month, when he performed excellently in defeat.
