Chelsea Football Club has submitted their 25-man squad for the first half of the 2020/21 Premier League season.
Fans were surprised after seeing that former goalkeeper Peter Cech was included in the team list.
Cech, 38, is currently Chelsea’s technical and performance advisor but takes role as non-contract player; Cech formally retired from playing in May 2019 following Arsenal’s Europa League final defeat to Chelsea
“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” according to Chelsea offical website.
