Arsenal fans are loving what Petr Cech said after they beat Bayern Munich

Cech refused to get carried away after pre-season win against Bayern Munich

Arsenal’s hectic pre-season continued yesterday as they overcame Bayern Munich in a sweltering Shanghai.

Robert Lewandowski opened the scoring from the penalty spot after nine minutes and Bayern looked to have wrapped things up before a late Alex Iwobi header levelled it at 1-1 and the game would go to penalties.

Arsenal eventually won the penalty shootout 3-2 after both Renato Sanches and Juan Bernat missed their spot kicks – Ending Arsenal’s miserable run against Bayern Munich.


The Arsenal squad were then presented with some silverware but Petr Cech had bigger things on his mind.

Watch below:

Before he held the trophy aloft, Cech was heard to say: “Let’s lift the big one at the end of the season.”

Cech’s words have confirmed Arsenal’s intentions to challenge for the title and this will be a relief for Arsenal fans to hear as they accuse their side regularly of not having a winning mentality or drive to succeed.

Needless to say, the Gunners faithful were pretty pleased to hear one of their players not getting too carried away with a minor pre-season trophy.
