Chelsea technical and performance advisor Petr Cech has become the next departure as the Blues boardroom restructuring continued following the takeover headed by new club owner Todd Boehly.

Boehly and Clearlake Capital completed a £4.25billion ($5.22billion) takeover of Chelsea at the end of May, making numerous changes to start their tenure.

Blues chairman Bruce Buck was the first to depart, with director and chief decision-maker Marina Granovskaia also set to leave after 12 years at Stamford Bridge.

Granovskaia will remain available to Boehly, who is acting as interim sporting director and chairman, for the duration of the current transfer window to help with the transitional period.

Cech, who took the boardroom role at Chelsea in 2019 after retiring as a player, reportedly held talks with Boehly this week in the wake of the Buck and Granovskaia exits.

The former goalkeeper has subsequently opted to leave his role, effective on Thursday, June 30.

“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,” Cech said.

“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.”

Boehly added: “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.”

The former Czech Republic international is an icon at Stamford Bridge, playing an integral role in the club’s long period of domestic and European success during the Roman Abramovich era.

Chelsea is yet to sign a single player this summer transfer window after the late takeover and it seems the new owners are keen to reshuffle the board first before making a step in the transfer window.

However, it remains to be seen whether Boehly has the required expertise to lead Chelsea during what will be an important summer transfer window as head coach Thomas Tuchel looks to close the gap on Manchester City and Liverpool.

Raheem Sterling, Ousmane Dembele, Mathijs De Ligt and Jules Kounde are among the players Chelsea are interested in this summer.
