Swansea city football club have announced they have signed Arsenal goalkeeper coach Tony Roberts. Roberts who was Arsenal’s goalkeeper coach is high rated in the game and the fact that he is leaving Arsenal can only be explained by the reports in the media in the last few days which claim Petr Cech who is Arsenal bound is coming with his personal coach Christophe Lollichon.
Lukas Fabianski who is a known fan of Roberts would be the greatest benficial of this. It has been remotely reported that the main reason the Poland international left Arsenal is because the club refused to let loose Perry Groves.
Also, with Christophe Lollichon coming to Arsenal with Cech and for 7 million ( reportedly ), Arsenal seem to gotten a very good deal. Cech is no doubt a world class goalkeeper. He is definitely going to impact positively on Arsenal’s other goalkeepers. Yes, he is 33, but let’s not forget Lehman joined Arsenal at 34 and Van Dar Sars joined United at 35.
The release of Tony Roberts to Swansea is further proof Petr Cech is on his way to Arsenal.
