Petr Cech has announced that he will retire from football at the end of the season.
The 36-year-old began the season as Arsenal number one, starting seven league games in August and September before he lost his place to summer signing Bernd Leno.
"This is my 20th season as a professional player and it has been 20 years since I signed my first professional contract, so it feels like the right time to announce that I will retire at the end of this season," Cech said in a statement released via Twitter.
Having played 15 years in the Premier League, and won every single trophy possible, I feel like I have achieved everything I set out to achieve.
I will continue to work hard at Arsenal to hopefully win one more trophy this season, then I am looking forward to seeing what life holds for me off the pitch.
In an illustrious career, Cech has won five FA Cups, four Premier Leagues, three League Cups, the Champions League and the Europa League.
