Petr Cech ended his football career, but not sports. The former goalie will try his hand at … ice hockey.
Petr Cech will debut as a goalie in a hockey game this Sunday. The 37-year-old will play at Guildford Phoenix – a team from London that will appear on another level playing in the Isles.
– After twenty years of a professional football career, it will be a wonderful experience. I would practice the discipline I loved watching and I loved playing as a kid – declares Czech.
The former goalkeeper has signed a one-year contract with the club, and he will combine appearances on the surface with work as a technical and sports consultant at Chelsea.
🧤 The 37-year-old retired in the summer and will now make his debut for @Gford_Phoenix this weekend.
