Chelsea legend Petr Cech endures NIGHTMARE’s return in Premier League 2 against Tottenham. The club’s technical director makes a blatant mistake and only cashes in two minutes after the surprise appearance
- Petr Cech returned from his retirement in Chelsea’s youth game against Tottenham
- The 38-year-old has been registered as an emergency shelter in the Premier League
- But Cech had brought a horror start into the game after conceding two minutes
- The legendary stopper’s poor pass led to a corner from which Tottenham scored
Petr Cech’s return from retirement did not go according to plan after the legendary goalkeeper conceded twice in the first half in the Premier League 2 clash against rivals Tottenham.
The 38-year-old made his last appearance for Arsenal when he lost the Europa League to his former club in May 2019 – but was a surprising face in training under Frank Lampard this season.
Registered as an emergency shelter for Chelsea, Cech returned between the sticks to stand up for youth action in Kingsmeadow on Monday night.
Petr Cech experienced a nightmare when they met in the Premier League 2 against Tottenham
The legendary stopper made a surprise appearance on Monday, but cashed in after just two minutes
His cameo got off to a horror start, however, after his attempt to faint from behind was cut away for a Tottenham corner instead.
Jubril Okedina managed to bring Brooklyn Lyons-Foster’s soft header home from close range after a short playing time. Cech got the ball out of his net in just two minutes.
Tottenham then doubled their lead in 17 minutes. A search ball from Harvey White over the home team’s backline was perfectly weighted to allow Dane Scarlett to place another header out of Cech’s reach.
Chelsea made a remarkable comeback in the second half, but Danny Drinkwater’s dismissal after a violent argument clouded their triumph.

Cech’s comeback was another unlikely event during the coronavirus pandemic and the result of several bizarre situations at the club.
Lucas Bergstrom is a regular for Chelsea’s youth teams but the West London team weren’t ready to use him twice in three days of his last appearance.
His support is usually Karlo Ziger, but the Croatian stopper remains part of the first-team bubble at Stamford Bridge.
The club is believed to have an interest in Ziger continuing to work under Chef Lampard and avoiding the hassle of coronavirus testing and reintegration entirely.
Cech is also part of the closed environment surrounding Chelsea’s elite ranks – but was preferred to compete in the youth game as Ziger was seen as above him in the pecking order.
