'Incredible' Petr Cech Has 'Amazed' Chelsea Players And Staff In Training This Season

'Incredible' Petr Cech Has 'Amazed' Chelsea Players And Staff In Training This Season

Chelsea's Petr Cech has 'amazed' coaching staff and has been 'incredible' when working with goalkeepers in training this season.

That's despite him retiring from the game in May 2019 after Arsenal's Europa League final defeat to the Blues.

Chelsea's technical and performance advisor will provide emergency cover for Kepa Arrizabalaga, Edouard Mendy and Willy Caballero as a non-contract player.

And it's being reported that picking the Czech keeper was an easy decision based on his performances in training.

The Telegraph's Matt Law claims Cech has 'amazed' Chelsea players and staff in training.

His fitness and agility convinced players and staff that he could still do a job at the highest level.

Chelsea Legend Petr Cech Was Better Than Kepa In Training Before Mendy Arrived

"It's definitely not for the romance," he explained.

"Pete's been training with the keepers for a little while. He's very fit and still relatively young. Pete finished playing when he could have probably carried on and taken on his role at Chelsea, which he does very well.

"We had a space in the squad and this year is like no other because of Covid and what it might do to selection and isolation. So it was an easy one. Pete will still do his day job but he's there if we need him.

"Whether we see him or not I'm not so sure. It depends how the season goes with Covid and isolations. I certainly felt it was a no brainer to have Pete in the squad for that reason and he can only help the goalkeepers we have. He's one of the best in the world in the modern era.

"If we're in crisis we couldn't ask for anything much better than having Petr Cech around. I don't expect it but nobody expected what we've seen in the last six or seven months around the world."

Lampard's side resume their league campaign on Saturday when they face Manchester United.
