Petr Cech will quit his role as Technical and Performance Advisor at Chelsea on 30th of June, the club vouched.
Earlier, long-time chairman Bruce Buck and director Marina Granovskaia also left from the club after the change in leadership at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea was traded last month for 2.5 billion pounds ($3.2 billion) — the highest price ever paid for a sports team — to an association led by club co-controlling owner Todd Boehly.
Since his recruitment 3 years ago, Cech has given advice and guidance on all football and performance matters throughout the Club, whilst bolstering the links between our men’s and Academy teams.
“It has been a huge privilege to perform this role at Chelsea for the past three years. 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 stated.
Todd Boehly, chairman and co-controlling owner, stated, “Petr is an important member of the Chelsea family. We understand his decision to step away and thank him for his contributions as an advisor and his commitment to the club and to our community. We wish him the best.”
