Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has provided an explaination as to why football boots are actually beneficial to goalkeepers, who mostly use their hands.

Have you ever asked yourself, "why do goalkeepers need football boots when they mostly use their hands?"

Well, Cech has explained how his Puma boots have helped him to the record for most clean sheets in the history of the Premier League – currently standing at 185 (as at 24/1/17).

The 34-year-old shotstopper has kept seven cleansheets in 22 Premier League matches for the London outfit so far this season, and conceded just 23 goals, as Arsenal occupy second spot on the log standings behind leaders Chelsea.

"Boots are as important as gloves, because as a goalkeeper you make a lot of violent movements," Cech told Puma.
