Chelsea fans have taken to social media to express their anger at new owner Todd Boehly after it was confirmed that Petr Cech will be the latest high-profile figure to leave the club.
The former goalkeeper has been a technical and performance adviser to the Blues since 2019 and will succeed sporting director Marina Granovskaia and club president Bruce Buck on the departure.
In a statement from Chelsea, Cech said: “It has been a tremendous privilege to be able to fulfill this role at Chelsea for the past three years. Now that the club is under new ownership I feel it is the right time to step aside.
