Goalkeeper Petr Cech will return to his former club Chelsea this summer in the capacity of a new sporting director.
The 37-year-old Arsenal shot-stopper already announced that he will retire from playing at the end of the season and at the moment, is waiting for Europa League final in Baku, Azerbaijan slated for May 29th against the Blues.
According to Sky Sports, “Chelsea have been without a technical director since Michael Emenalo’s resignation in November 2017, as director Marina Granovskaia has taken on the majority of his old duties since he departed the club.
“It is not clear at this stage exactly what responsibilities Cech will have, but he could share some of the burden in terms of recruitment and bridging the gap between the board and the manager.”
Cech is a legend at Stamford Bridge having been there for 11 seasons, during which he won four Premier League titles and a Champions League trophy in 2012 among other things.
