Cech announced his retirement after leaving Arsenal last summer and returned to Chelsea as technical director. At Cechs age, 38 as a goalkeeper and in good physical condition, it is not a problem to support the game. Even Caballero, who is currently the No. 3 goalkeeper and often gets playing opportunities, is one year older than Cech.
According to the official statement of Chelsea, Cech was included in the list to prevent the possible accidental staff reduction caused by the outbreak, although Lampards team already has three goalkeepers, namely, Kepa, Mendi and Caballero. Although he is on the list as a player, there is no player contract between Chelsea and Cech. He is selected as a no contract player.
Chelseas Premier League list: Kepa, ludig, Alonso, Christensen (local youth training), jozhnio, Tiago Silva, Kant, plicic, werna, Caballero, tomri (local youth), Zuma, Mendi, Kovac, girou, mount (U21), Oddi (U21), chilville (local youth training), zieh, gilmo (U21), Rees James (U21), aspiriqueta, hafts (U21), Emerson, Cech (non contract)
