Chelsea have confirmed that Petr Cech will step down as Technical and Performance Advisor at Chelsea this week.
The former goalkeeper will become the latest to leave the club after Todd Boehly took over following the departures of chairman Bruce Buck and director Marina Granovskaia last week.
Cech said: “It has been a huge privilege to play this role at Chelsea for the past three years. With the club under new ownership, I think it’s the right time for me to step down. I am happy that the club is now in an excellent position with the new owners, and I am confident of its future success on and off the pitch.
Boehly, chairman and co-owner, added: “Petr is an important member of the Chelsea family. We understand his decision to step down and thank him for his contributions as an advisor and his commitment to the club and our community. We wish him the best.
Cech, who made 333 appearances for Chelsea, was appointed in 2019.
