Legend Cech's Munich memories

REACTION: Cech - "We've Chased This For 8 Years!"

Over the course of a wonderful, trophy-laden 11-year Chelsea career, Petr Cech enjoyed countless memorable moments, none more so than that never-to-be-forgotten night when the Blues overcame Bayern Munich to win the Champions League in 2012.

Cech, who announced he would be retiring at the end of the season earlier today, was pivotal to the triumph, saving a penalty in extra-time to deny former Chelsea team-mate Arjen Robben, then making two further stops in the subsequent shoot-out before Didier Drogba converted the decisive kick to spark jubilant scenes.
