The focus of the job will be to provide advice on all football and performance matters throughout the club as well as embed and facilitate strong links between Chelsea men’s and academy teams, ensuring that the various support departments are working together effectively.
Cech will be based at Cobham and will work closely with Chelsea director, Marina Granovskaia. His role will also align him with the men’s first team coaching and backroom staff, travelling with the team home and away with an emphasis on strategy and performance.
“I feel very privileged to have this opportunity to join Chelsea FC again and help create the best possible high-level performance environment to continue the success the club has had over the past 15 years,” says Petr Cech. “I’m looking forward to the new challenge and hope I can use all of my football knowledge and experience to help the team achieve even more success in the future.”
In his glittering Stamford Bridge playing career, Cech won every major club honour possible. He surpassed Peter Bonetti’s Chelsea clean-sheet record and became the club’s highest overseas appearance maker.
