Chelsea coach leaves club after 15 years

Chelsea’s head of goalkeeping Christophe Lollichon has announced that he will be leaving the club after 15 years at Stamford Bridge.

Lollichon who had been at the club since 2007 had worked with Chelsea legend Petr Cech during his time at Rennes.

Lollichon has played different roles at the club and was promoted to the head of goalkeeping in 2016.

The 59-year-old was responsible for the signing of Edouard Mendy, whom he has long been an admirer of after identifying him in 2018.

After the final game of the season, the Frenchman took to twitter: “After 15 years at Chelsea FC, it’s time to announce that I am leaving the Blues.

“From 1st team goalkeeper coach to working with the keepers on loan and the recruitment dept, being a part of the club’s success has been an honour.

“Thank you to the fans & everyone at the club.”
