‘Keeper Cech trusts Wenger to buy play­ers

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport Starts Here -

GOAL­KEEPER Petr Cech ex­pects man­ager Arsene Wenger to bring in the right play­ers nec­es­sary to im­prove Arse­nal’s bid to win a first Premier League ti­tle since 2004 with­out wast­ing money on panic buys.

Wenger has made three ad­di­tions to his squad so far in the close sea­son, bring­ing in mid­fielder Granit Xhaka, de­fender Rob Hold­ing and striker Takuma Asano, and, ac­cord­ing to me­dia re­ports, is ac­tively look­ing for an­other for­ward.

“I think you need to buy play­ers you need, you need to buy play­ers that will im­prove the team and not to buy play­ers just for buy­ing. That’s the phi­los­o­phy of the club,” Cech told Bri­tish me­dia.

“I’ve been here since last sea­son and you can see that ev­ery time we bring in a player, it’s a player we need, and the man­ager be­lieves he im­proves the team.

“There is a core of the play­ers who have been at Arse­nal for years, and they know that is an ad­van­tage as well. Peo­ple get to know each other, how to play to­gether.”

Le­ices­ter’s Jamie Vardy has al­ready spurned the ad­vances of the north Lon­don club in favour of ex­tend­ing his stay at the King Power Sta­dium, while Olympique Ly­on­nais said they re­jected a 29 mil­lion pound ($38.27 mil­lion) bid for Alexan­dre La­cazette.. — Reuters.
