Petr Cech to leave Chelsea as Technical and Performance Advisor after takeover by Todd Boehly

Chelsea technical and performance advisor Petr Cech has become the latest staff member to leave the club after their takeover.

Former Czech Republic international Cech spent a number of years with the London club as a player. He returned to west London after retiring from the game, working for Chelsea during Roman Abramovich’s time in charge, but will move on after the takeover from Todd Boehly’s group was completed.

The departure is far from the first over the summer, with Chelsea confirming Cech will leave on June 30.

“It has been a huge privilege to perform this role at Chelsea for the past three years,” Cech told club media. “With the Club under new ownership, I feel now is the right time for me to step aside. I am pleased that the Club is now in an excellent position with the new owners, and I am confident of its future success both on and off the pitch.”

Cech’s departure came despite efforts from Boehly to keep him on board. The ex-goalkeeper is said to have told the American now was the right time to move on, despite the owner being keen to use his expertise during the current transfer window.

Boehly gave his thanks to the outgoing Cech, saying: “Petr is an important member of the Chelsea family.
