Petr Cech has expressed his desire to battle for his place as Arsenal’s first-choice ‘keeper under new head coach Unai Emery.
Arsenal signed Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen in June and he started their pre-season match against Atletico Madrid in Singapore on Thursday.
“I said from the start I want to stay and fight for my place in the team and I will honour my contract, unless the club tells me to go,” Cech told Sky Sports News.
“I am performing hard and training hard every day to be ready and be ready for when my opportunity comes.
“I want to show the manager I can be the starting goalkeeper and all the players do the same and I think it’s great for the team.”
