The West London outfit Chelsea have suffered a major blow in their bid to land Arsenal legendary goalkeeper Petr Cech as their sporting director ahead of the coming season.
Petr Cech has already announced his decision to quit active football at the end of the season with his next step yet to be known but will not happen until after he has played his last Arsenal game, the Europa League finals, against Chelsea later on Thursday.
It was earlier reported that the stopper has got an offer from Chelsea and Arsenal to take charge of the youth team but a report yesterday claims that the West London outfit are offering Petr Cech a sporting director role to have him return back to the Stamford Bridge.
However, the legendary stopper, who is one of the best the English Premier League has ever had refuted the claim that he would be joining Chelsea as their new reporting director.
According to him, no decision has been made, stressing that it would only happen after he has played his last Arsenal game.
Howbeit, Petr Cech seeks to leave the stage while the ovation is very high by lifting the Europa League title with the North London outfit Arsenal later on Thursday.
