It will come of very little surprise to those not in the know that Petr Cech is a thoroughly nice man.
He’s the sort of person you’d definitely take home to your parents, but when those circumstances would ever arise remains to be seen.
The Arsenal goalkeeper was left on the bench in favour of David Ospina for their side’s 2-1 FA Cup final victory over Chelsea at Wembley.
Ospina has played four times in the competition this season, and had a back injury for the semi-final against Manchester City.
He has also been employed as the Gunners’ Champions League goalkeeper, but Cech remains the club’s number one.
Arsene Wenger made a tricky decision to not use the Czech stopper in the final, but it was Cech’s reaction after the final whistle was blown that has got everyone abuzz.
Immediately after the game was over, Cech ran over to Ospina to celebrate with the Colombian, and looked ecstatic to be congratulating his fellow goalie.
What’s more impressive is Ospina made an error for Chelsea’s equaliser, as he flapped at Diego Costa’s shot to give the Blues a route back into the game.
Anyone could have thought Cech might be sat there on the bench cursing to himself that it should be him out there on the pitch – but after the final whistle he did virtually the opposite.
Added to that, Cech is of course a former Chelsea player himself, so you’d forgive him for perhaps not celebrating so ferociously.
But he looked genuinely delighted (and rightly so) to be celebrating the victory alongside his co-stopper, and the champagne will be flowing for a while to come yet.
