Cech open up and reacts to critics and then announces Emery ‘is very demanding’
Arsenal star Petr Cech has admitted new boss Unai Emery is very demanding, after the former Chelsea star started another Premier League fixture.
The 36-year old did not have the best of seasons under Arsene Wenger last year and many fans believed that he would be spending much of his time on the bench this year, especially since Emery splashed £22 million to bring Bernd Leno to the Emirates in a deal worth £22 million.
However, Cech has earned his spot in Emery’s side and has started all six Premier League fixtures, helping Arsenal at the weekend on their 2-0 win over Everton to make in four wins on the spot.
And Cech has hit out at people who writ him off earlier in the summer, he was quoted: “We concentrate on ourselves. People can have their opinions. The season is very long.
“We have four wins in a row and are in a much better place but there are so many games to be played still. You go through periods in the season where you are getting through difficult moments, better moments, great moments so we keep our feet on the ground.
“We keep working and we try to do our best to get as many points as possible and improve in every game. We are happy with the points.”
And Cech then admitted working under Emery can be very demanding, but it is the only way that ‘you can improve’
He added: “He is very demanding and I think this is how you improve.
“I think the place became much more demanding in every way so this is great to see because this is what initially drives everybody forward and gives you the kind of kick that, ‘I’m not doing enough to start the game’ or ‘I’m not doing enough to keep my spot in the game’ because the manager asked for precision and hard work every day.
“This is how it should be. We have very healthy competition and we are actually taking the benefit of it.”
