Legendary goalkeeper, Petr Cech has hit back at German Bundesliga side, Bayer Leverkusen after he was mocked by the club for his mistake in Arsenal’s defeat to Manchester City on Sunday.
Cech was tasked with playing the ball out from the back by new Gunners boss Unai Emery, but the tactic nearly backfired in the first half against Manchester City.
After receiving a back-pass from midfielder, Matteo Guendouzi, the former Chelsea goalkeeper came close to passing the ball into his own net.
Emery started Cech ahead of his £22 million summer signing, Bernd Leno, who was brought in from Bayer Leverkusen.
The Leno’s former club, Bayer Leverkusen took the opportunity to mock Cech on Twitter for his error against City.
Cech, however, fired back at the Bundesliga side on Monday by suggesting that they have not shown “professionalism and sportsmanship.”
“At Arsenal, we share important values which make us a big club not only on the football side,” Cech posted on Twitter.
