Former Czech international goalkeeper Petr Cech is the third to leave Chelsea after his ownership was transferred to American businessman Todd Pohle, by stepping down from his advisory role.
The club’s US president Bruce Buck and Canadian-Russian CEO Marina Garnovskaya also announced their departure from the west London club last week.
Cech, who won 13 titles with Chelsea while defending his colours, was appointed as a technical adviser when he retired from playing in 2019.
“I have felt privileged to have held this position at Chelsea for the past three years,” Cech said in a statement on the club’s official website. I feel it’s time to step up.”
“I am delighted that the club is in a good position with the new owners and I am confident that it will continue to achieve success in the future, both on and off the pitch.”
And Bohli will now temporarily hold the position of club president and sporting director, saying, praising Cech, “the amputation of an essential member of the Chelsea family. We understand his decision to leave his position and thank him for his contributions as an advisor and his dedication to serving the club and its supporters.”
