Petr Cech, a former goalkeeper for Chelsea, disputed with Todd Boehly, a co-owner of Chelsea, about the striker’s return to Inter Milan on loan before leaving Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea announced earlier today that Cech would leave his position as the team’s Technical and Performance Advisor at the end of this week.
Cech had been in charge since he was appointed in 2019.
The Telegraph claims that Cech’s decision to leave Chelsea was somewhat influenced by how much the new ownership had diminished his influence.
Cech served as a liaison between the Chelsea coaches and the club’s director Marina Granovskaia, and he was critical to a number of football and transfer decisions, most notably the recommendation of goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.
But once Granovskaia left last week, Boehly assumed the title of “interim sporting director,” and now he and manager Thomas Tuchel are primarily in charge of making transfers with Cech out injured.
