Cech Comes Out Of Retirement To Sign For Ice Hockey Team

He is, however, not returning to the football pitch. Instead, the legendary goalkeeper who has a record of over 200 clean sheets in the English Premier League history, which is the most by any goalkeeper, has signed with ice hockey team, Guildford Phoenix.

"I am delighted to have the opportunity to play with the Phoenix to get match experience," Cech said in a club press release.

"I hope I can help this young team to achieve their goals for the season and try to win as many games as possible when I have the chance to play.

"After 20 years of professional football, this is going to be a wonderful experience for me to play the game I loved to watch and play as a kid."

The 37-year-old has already taken part in some training sessions with the Phoenix in August. He will be playing in the capacity of a goaltender, which is synonymous with the role of a goalkeeper in football.
