Europa League: Arsenal fans attack Cech, tells him to retire over errors in 2-2 draw with CSKA


Arsenal fans have told veteran goalkeeper, Petr Cech to retire and go home after he allowed two cheap goals during the Europa League quarter final against CSKA Moscow on Thursday night.

The Gunners went to Russia with a comfortable 4-1 advantage from the first-leg. But they found themselves under immense pressure after the hosts scored two goals.

Fedor Chalov opened the scoring late in the first half and then Kirill Nababkin scored early in the second period.

Both goals came from rebounds after saves from the former Chelsea goalkeeper.

The first was a good stop from the Arsenal goalkeeper, but his save went straight into the path of Chalov who tucked in from a close range.

The errors from Cech aren’t the first the 35-year-old has made this season and the latest had many Arsenal fans calling on him to retire.

The disappointed fans reacted through their Twitter handles:

@alleyne_kammies, “Petr Cech really is done as a top goal keeper the man needs to retire.”

@Gooner “Cech please retire already.”

@KingKayThe1st, “Cech needs to just retire.”

@usuf101, “Cech need to retire soon.”

@kyle_waite135, “This season Cech has been so much worse than all of our so called ‘terrible’ goalkeepers in the past before him. Needs to retire.”

@Jamie_Gearing, “Can we force Cech to retire?”

@danhexum, “Can Cech retire yet? We are in need of a keeper next year.”

@Mig_Fairweather, “The crumble for Arsenal is happening right before my eyes… Cech needs to retire with Buffon at the end of the season.”

@AKaffaf, “Cech needs to retire, how many mistakes is this guy gonna make.”

@DarkMondo, “Omg Cech!!! He fully needs to retire.”
