Petr Cech leaves Chelsea after meeting with club’s new owner, Todd Boehly

Chelsea technical and performance advisor, Petr Cech is the latest staff member to leave the club after Todd Boehly officially became the new owner.

Prior to Cech’s departure, the club’s Chairman, Bruce Buck had stood down, while Marina Granovskaia, the figure behind a number of transfers over recent years at the club had also announced her departure.

Notwithstanding, the club’s former chief executive, Guy Laurence and ex-head of goalkeepers, Christophe Lollichon are also out of the club.

“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.
