Arsenal shot stopper Petr Cech has confirmed that he will retire from football at the end of this season.

The retired Czech Republic international reiterated his desire to hang up his gloves after he helped Arsenal book their spot in the Europa League final.

Cech told BT Sports that he has not changed his mind about retiring from football at the end of this season.

According to him, he wants to leave the field on his own terms and not when it’s too late as he can still continue to play for two more seasons.

Petr Cech further revealed that his final dream was to qualify for the Europa League final and to win the competition.

Cech and Arsenal will face his former club Chelsea in the final of the competition billed for Baku on May 29.

Arsenal booked their spot in the Europa League final with a 7-3 aggregate win over Spanish club Valencia in their semifinals.

The Gunners beat Valencia 4-2 away from home with Cech in goal having already won the first leg at home via a 3-1 win.

They will face Chelsea who needed penalty shootout to dispatch German Bundesliga outfit Eintracht Frankfurt after both sides played 1-1 in the first leg and the second leg.

Extra time of the season leg produced no goal before Chelsea triumphed 4-3 on penalties.
