There are two absolute certainties in Petr Cech’s life:
- He’s ridiculously good in goals
- His wife definitely can’t bake
The first was made even more clear at the weekend as he recorded his 169th clean sheet in Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Aston Villa to equal David James’ English Premier League record.
And the second became known after the Czech Republic goalkeeper shared a picture of a ginger bread man his wife Martina made of him after hitting the special landmark.
She’s taken a lot of stick from fans after Cech posted a picture of her baking effort on Twitter and it’s received almost 4,000 retweets:
Found this in the morning ?… My wife's baking … ? pic.twitter.com/qk38C8iv5T

Still, it’s the thought that counts – and Cech must have realised that or else he wouldn’t have shared the dodgy baked good with his millions of followers.
A great weekend for Cech was followed up by a horrible Monday as his side were drawn with reigning European champions Barcelona in the Champions League last 16.
