He wrote: “This is my 20th season as a professional player and it is 20 years since I signed my first professional contract, so it feels like the right time to announce that I will retire at the end of this season.”The Czech, who arrived in the Premier League with Chelsea in 2004 and moved to Arsenal in 2015, added: “Having played 15 years in the Premier League and won every single trophy possible, I feel like I have achieved everything I set out to achieve.“I will continue to work hard at Arsenal to hopefully win one more trophy this season, then I am looking forward to seeing what life holds for me off the pitch.”Cech joined Arsenal in 2015 and has made 129 appearances for the Gunners after winning multiple trophies at rivals Chelsea.Signed from Rennes by Claudio Ranieri in 2004, Cech won four Premier League titles, four FA Cups, the Champions League, the Europa League and three League Cups with the Blues.Cech suffered a serious head injury in 2006 following a collision with Reading’s Stephen Hunt.Hunt’s knee crashed into Cech’s head, leaving him with a fractured skull, but he returned to action four months later wearing what became his trademark protective headgear.Cech became the first goalkeeper to keep 200 Premier League clean sheets in Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Watford last season, during which he saved a penalty from Troy Deeney.He is also the Czech Republic’s most capped player, making 124 appearances.Cech is no longer first choice at Arsenal, with Bernd Leno preferred for most of this season so far, but the club were quick to pay their own tribute.Arsenal tweeted: “For your consummate professionalism, for being the perfect role model, for the 50 clean sheets, for your honesty, your integrity and for your inspiring work with @AFC_Foundation, we want to say… Thank you, @PetrCech!”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has announced he is retiring at the end of the season © AFP/File / Adrian DENNISLONDON, United Kingdom, Jan 15 – Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech announced on Tuesday that he will retire at the end of the season.The 36-year-old, who won four Premier League titles with Chelsea, revealed his decision on Twitter.
KILLER Stephen Cahoon used several different names so that girlfriends weren’t aware of his evil past, it has been revealed.The Derryman was jailed for life yesterday for the murder of mother of four Jean Quigley in 2008. He was arrested ten days later by a quick-thinking Garda in Donegal Town.Jean’s mother Emma McBride, who found her 30-year-old daughter’s body, said of the murder verdict from the Dublin jury: “It’s never going to bring Jean back, but at least now I know she didn’t die in vain. “To see him getting what he deserves, it’s a relief, but at the same time now I can grieve.”Jean’s brother Gerald said: “People like Stephen Cahoon need to be on a register much much sooner so that people are aware who the criminals out there are that can cause this kind of hurt and pain, so that people like Jean would have known to stay away from them.”Cahoon had a violent history, leaving a teenager for dead in 1999 – an attack for which he was later given five years.Jean Quigley was just his latest victim. Her family said he went by a number of different names and “nobody ever put two and two together”.Police described Cahoon as a “dangerous sexual predator with a history of violence against women. He deserves to stay behind bars for a very long time”.Jean’s sister Anne-Marie said: “He made his past out to be that his partners were as bad as he was. He said he went with some girls and they were crazy, but we found out later on that he was the crazy one.”EVIL CAHOON: FAMILY SPEAK OUT AS KILLER GETS LIFE was last modified: May 1st, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:EVIL CAHOON: FAMILY SPEAK OUT AS KILLER GETS LIFEJean QuigleySTEPHEN CAHOON
