Petr Cech is set to be offered a permanent role by Chelsea, either as a coach or ambassador, after he announced his intention to retire from football at the end of the season.
Cech, currently with Arsenal, announced on Monday that he would be hanging up his gloves at the end of the season after a 20-year playing career, but, according to The BBC, it looks like he is set to stay in London, with a return to his former club in some capacity.
The former Czech International was the most successful goalkeeper in Chelsea history, winning 13 trophies in an 11-year spell at the club, including the Champions League, and the Premier League on 4 occasions.
He joined Arsenal in 2015 but, out of contract in the summer, and with Bernd Leno displacing him as the number one keeper in North London, he has decided to stop playing, although his involvement in football seems set to continue.
Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
