Cech Comes Out of Retirement to Sign for Ice Hockey Team

Former Chelsea and Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has decided to come out of retirement – but he’s not returning to the football pitch.

Instead, Cech has signed with ice hockey team Guildford Phoenix, for whom he will make his debut on Friday.

“I am delighted to have the opportunity to play with the Phoenix to get match experience,” Cech said in a club press release.

“I hope I can help this young team to achieve their goals for the season and try to win as many games as possible when I have the chance to play.

“After 20 years of professional football this is going to be a wonderful experience for me to play the game I loved to watch and play as a kid.”

The 37-year-old took part in a training session with the Phoenix in August, posting a picture on Instagram of him playing goaltender.
