Petr Cech has hit out at Bayer Leverkusen after they ridiculed his performance against Manchester City on Sunday.
The veteran Arsenal keeper reacted to Leverkusen’s official Twitter account showing a gif of him almost passing the ball into his own goal during his team’s 2-0 home defeat.
And the Bundesliga giants then twisted the knife with a message declaring: “In case you were all wondering how to play out from the back, we might know a guy,” followed by footage of Bernd Leno setting up a Leverkusen goal last season.
Cech replied defiantly to the taunts, declaring: “At Arsenal we share important values which make us a big club not only on the football side.
“Fair competition, professionalism and sportsmanship are the biggest ones and it’s sad to see when other clubs don’t share the same values…@bayer04.”
German international Leno, signed by Arsenal for £19.2million this summer, was widely expected to replace Cech as the Gunners’ number one keeper.
