It was the transfer Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho admitted he wanted to block, but Petr Cech has been speaking about his reasons for making his high profile move to Arsenal.

Cech sealed his move across London in a transfer that could have big ramifications for next season's Premier League title race, with the keeper who has won it all at Stamford Bridge offering up an emotional letter to Chelsea fans on his departure.

That letter brought an end to Cech's time as a Chelsea player and he was quick to join in with some Twitter banter with his new Arsenal team-mate Theo Walcott.

Cech also received welcome messages from Aaron Ramsey and Kieran Gibbs, before offering up this first interview to Arsenal's Youtube channel.
