The 37-year-old has distanced himself from rumours linking him with a return to Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.

The Arsenal shot-stopper, who spent 11 successful years with the Blues before joining the club's London rivals four years ago, is set to officially retire from the game following the Europa League final in Baku next week.

Lampard to take over Chelsea reins?

According to Sky Sports News, Cech will return to Chelsea in the European summer in a new sporting director role at the club.

Chelsea have been without a technical director since Michael Emenalo's resignation two years ago.

Cech, though, has distanced himself from these claims:

"Despite the news today as I had already said to everybody before, I'll make a decision about my future after the last game. Now my sole focus is to win the Europa League with Arsenal," Cech tweeted.
