Chelsea vs Arsenal: Petr Cech insists focus is on winning Europa League with Gunners after reports of Stamford Bridge return

Cech, who turned 37 on Monday, confirmed earlier this year he will retire following the showpiece game between the Gunners and the Blues in Azerbaijan next Wednesday.

A report on Tuesday evening suggested Cech – who joined Chelsea from Rennes in 2004 and went on to win a string of trophies, including four Premier League titles and the 2012 Champions League – was set to take up an off-field role at Stamford Bridge.

Later, Cech took to social media to stress no decision on his future had yet been made.

He wrote on Twitter: “Despite the news today as I had already said to everybody before , I’ll make decision about my future after the last game. Now my sole focus is to win the EL (sic) with @Arsenal ”

Michael Emenalo left his role as Chelsea’s technical director during November 2017 to join Monaco.

After helping Arsenal reach the Europa League final with a semi-final victory over Valencia, Cech was asked about his plans once he finally hung up his gloves at the end of the season.
