Petr Cech finally joined up with his new Arsenal teammates last week, and now midfielder Aaron Ramsey believes that he will have a more than positive impact on the squad, according to the Daily Mirror.
The 33-year-old was put through his paces in his first training session after returning from a family holiday in Italy.
And Ramsey believes that Cech’s ability and experience will go a long way into helping the side overhaul Premier League rivals Chelsea at the top of the table.
“He is a great signing and has been there and done it with Chelsea,” the Wales international said.
“He has a lot of experience in the big games which will help us, he’s a top-class goalkeeper and still has a lot of qualities and can offer a lot to this team.
“I can only see good things coming from him and him having an effect on this team.
“We have a great squad at the moment as long as we keep everyone fit… our form in the second half of last season was good, but it’s what you need throughout the whole season to compete.
“Hopefully we can do that and get off to a good start this season and put ourselves in a great position early on.
“We know we have the players and the quality to hurt other teams and get points. There is no question about our ability but it’s about whether we can keep everyone fit and I am fairly confident we can.
“Chelsea were top mainly all the way through, they hardly slipped up and that is what we have to try to do.”
