Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech is coming towards the end of his playing days but he will still remain at the club next season.
Those are the thoughts of legendary Liverpool defender turned pundit Steve Nicol.
Cech joined Arsenal in the summer of 2015 and has been the Premier League No 1 ever since.
However, the Chelsea hero has come under criticism for his performances from Gunners supporters this season.
His contract at the Emirates expires in the summer of 2019 and Nicol reckons he will see that out.
But he does admit backup keeper David Ospina, who is yet to start a Premier League game this term, is breathing down Cech’s neck.
“I still believe in Petr Cech myself, he’s solid,” Nicol said.
“Gone are the days where he’s getting you five-10 points a season with some miraculous saves. But his basics are still spot on.
“He’s coming to the end of his career, 35 years of age.
“I think Ospina is beginning to push him.
“I don’t think he leaves in the summer, maybe next summer.”
Cech has made 95 Premier League appearances for Arsenal and is one clean sheet away from 200 in total in the competition.
