38 year old Chelsea legenary goalkeeper Petr Cech has been included in Chelsea’s 25-man Premier League squad as emergency goalkeeper cover.
Cech has been named alongside the other three Chelsea goalkeepers – Edouard Mendy, Kepa Arrizabalaga and Willy Caballero.
A club statement read: “Petr Cech has been included in the squad as emergency goalkeeper cover. This is a precautionary step due to the unprecedented conditions currently caused by the Covid-19 crisis. He takes up a position as a non-contract player.”
Cech is currently working as a technical adviser at the club and last made a professional appearance in his last outing for Arsenal in the Europa League final, against Chelsea, in May 2019.
