And the 38-year-old was said to have great influence on Chelsea choosing to go after Mendy.
Lampard said earlier this week: “Petr was important in that because goalkeeper is a very particular position.
“Petr Cech was the best in the world in that position for a long time so he’s obviously had a big say in this situation.
“From my point of view, I lean heavily on him when it comes to goalkeeping today and in the future. So yes, he was very influential.”
