Cech to Follow the Steps of Chelsea Ambassadors and Coaches Such as Paulo Ferreira and John Terry and Most Probably Return to the Field
Petr Cech, who has been one of the top-notch goalkeepers of Arsenal, has announced his retirement and it is yet to see whether he will derive inspiration from players such as Paulo Ferreira, who played for the Portuguese and retired to be the Loan Player Technical Coach in Chelsea.
Ferreira, who played as a full-back for Portuguese football retired after his 16 years long career after grabbing several titles and later signed as an ambassador and loan player technical coach for Chelsea. Ferreira after announcing his retirement in 2013 joined Eddie Newton to assist him in the loan player system for the blues. Petr Cech, the 36-year-old Arsenal goalkeeper is hoped to be called back by Chelsea to join them in the field once again. He could be offered the role of an executive, or coach or an ambassadorial post like that of Paulo Ferreira. It is reported to be a part of Chelsea’s strategy in recognizing retired players who have made significant contributions to the game and utilized their talent and experience for the upcoming players and games by bestowing them with roles such as coaches or executives.
If he returns, he will be following the former Chelsea players who have been training the young players of the team. Some players like Joe Cole, who has returned to the field have started helping out Ferreira and Eddie Newton in the field, but it is yet to see what Cech fixes his mind onto. It can be stated that Chelsea’s tactical inclusion of former eminent club members into the game has been effective and has inspired many other retired members to do so, thus sharpening the skills and talents of junior players.
