Petr Cech will leave his role as Technical and Performance Advisor at Chelsea on June 30.

Cech is the latest to leave the club following the Todd Boehly-Clearlake takeover after the departure of chairman Bruce Buck and director Marina Grnovskaia

Cech said: “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. 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.”

Todd Boehly, chairman and co-controlling owner, said: “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.”

Cech was appointed three years ago to provide advice and guidance on all football and performance matters at Chelsea having played 333 times for the club.

Boehly was named chairman and interim sporting director following the departures of Buck and Granovskaia last week.

Granovskaia, who rose to prominence as one of the toughest negotiators in football during Roman Abramovich’s reign, will remain available to support Boehly for the duration of the current transfer window. Buck will continue to support the club as a senior advisor.
