The Telegraph are this morning reporting that a key figure at Chelsea has stepped down from his role and left the club.

Chelsea have since confirmed this officially on their channels.

Petr Cech is a firm fan favourite at the club, especially in the stands, and many describe him as a Chelsea legend, and rightly so.

But it’s been reported by the reliable Matt Law of The Telegraph, that Cech has stepped down from his role as technical and performance advisor with Chelsea, following last week’s departures of Bruce Buck and Marina Granovskaia.

This is pretty major news but perhaps not unexpected after the exodus of last week, and it now looks very clear that Todd Boehly as the new owner and chairman, is making some big changes across all levels at the club, even if it looks like this was Cech’s decision.

Boehly had asked Cech to stay and help him through this transfer window, but the 40-year-old informed him in a meeting that he felt the time was right to go.

He will be sorely missed at the club.
