Petr Cech is still ready to play in the Premier League if the situation arises

Chelsea FC have included technical director Petr Cech as a fourth goalkeeper alongside Kepa Arrizabalaga, Edouard Mendy and Willy Caballero in their 25-man squad for the 20/21 Premier League season.

This sees one of the Blues’ best-ever goalkeepers make a comeback from retirement to help out his club. Petr Cech retired from professional football after the end of the 2018-19 season which saw Chelsea win the Europa League against Cech’s Arsenal. The keeper then moved back to Stamford Bridge and has taken up his role as a technical director at the club. 

As of recently, the 38-year-old has been working with the keepers at the club, as shown in Chelsea’s training videos. The fact that he has been included in the squad itself now suggests an unbelievable foreshadowing of the Blues’ decision.

Former Chelsea shot-stopper Mark Schwarzer told Optus Sports: “I spoke to him two weeks ago and we were talking about lots of different things, talking about Mendy, Kepa and himself training,”

“And he just was saying that he felt so good.”

“He said to me that, had he have known that having time off he would have felt so good, he would have only had six months off and wouldn’t have retired.”

“He actually believes he’s fit enough and strong enough and good enough still to play in the Premier League.”

“So it’s an interesting one because he’s caught in two jobs at the moment, he’s Chelsea’s Technical and Performance Advisor and that his number one role.”

“But if an opportunity came along that was of interest to him, I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw Petr Cech coming back out of retirement and playing somewhere. I’m not saying it’s going to happen, but it would not be a shock to me if that happened.”
