Ex goalkeeper, Jens Lehmann has advised newly signed Arsenal skipper, Petr Cech to get over his love for his former club, Chelsea and focus on the task ahead of him.
The Czech international completed a move from Chelsea to Arsenal a week ago for £10m. The Arsenal legend has claimed it could take a while for the 33 year-old to settle at the Emirates Stadium.
“It’s not easy to suddenly go from Chelsea, where he has spent almost his whole career winning many trophies, to the other side of the capital with a rival. Before you can have it in your heart to win titles again, you have to get rid of the love you had before.
“At Chelsea, for Petr, it was his passion and he showed great commitment. But, as a professional, he needs to get over it and needs to know Arsenal want him to win things again for them. Yet, let me tell you, that is not an easy thing to get over psychologically. It can take a few weeks, even a few months.” He told The Sun.
