Chelsea offer no respite to old hero Roberto Di Matteo at Schalke What a difference a few centimetres make. That was the margin between Naldo's late header for Wolfsburg at the Veltins Arena on Saturday afternoon hitting the crossbar -- as it did -- or going in, which would have seen Schalke shell a three-goal lead against direct rivals for a Champions League spot. Instead, after holding on for a 3-2 victory, Roberto Di Matteo can exhale and look back on four home wins out of four since he took charge exactly seven weeks ago. The pause to look at that record is brief, though, with the Champions League visit of his former club Chelsea to Gelsenkirchen on Tuesday night. It is a crucial game in Schalke's season, hot on the heels of the last one. The treadmill is relentless, a fact underlined by Di Matteo as he barely acknowledged the emotional side of his reunion with The Blues as he looked forward to the game with various members of the British media last week. This is how it is at a club the size of Schalk ...

"I don't play against him," said Mourinho dryly. "If I play against him, he wins because he plays better than me.

Jose Mourinho not impressed by Roberto Di Matteo's Chelsea success Jose Mourinho insists he is not motivated by the thought of matching Roberto Di Matteo's achievement of winning the Champions League with Chelsea. Instead the Portuguese wants to set about building his next great team at Stamford Bridge, one that is capable of challenging for the trophy which has so far eluded him during his time in West London. Having delivered European Cups whilst in charge at Porto and Inter Milan, Mourinho so far has not been able to repeat the feat with Chelsea - whose one and only success in the competition came under Di Matteo's stewardship in 2012. But this season has started promisingly for the Blues, who are unbeaten in all competitions and sit clear at the top of the Premier League. Progression into the knockout stages of the Champions League can be attained with a victory over Di Matteo's Schalke side in Gelsenkirchen on Tuesday evening but Mourinho is not thinking about having to equal the Italian's triumphs d ...

The Bundesliga outfit are in urgent need of the points themselves though in their bid to make it through to the knockout phase of Europe’s premier club competition in February.

Schalke have appointed Former Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo as their new head coach after parting company with Jens Keller. Di Matteo has been out of a job since being sacked by Chelsea in 2012, despite guiding the club to their first ever Champions League crown that year. The Italian takes over from Keller after Schalke revealed they would be holding a crisis meeting on Tuesday surrounding the future of the under-fire manager. Di Matteo is set to meet his former club Chelsea on November 25, when they visit the Veltins Arena for their fifth Champions League match in Group G. The first meeting between the two sides ended in a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge. Keller's job had appeared to look safe last month after Schalke took seven points from three Bundesliga games, including a 2-1 home derby win against Borussia Dortmund. However, following the 2-1 defeat to Hoffenheim at the weekend, which followed a 1-1 draw with Maribor in the Champions League last week, the German club opted to make the change. "We d ...

Former Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo could be in contention to replace Sam Allardyce at West Ham United, [football] direct news understands. The current Hammers boss is under pressure at Upton Park after his negative tactics provoked an angry reaction from the club's fans in yesterday's 2-1 win over Hull City, and Allardyce's reaction to their complaints has not helped matters. The former Bolton Wanderers manager has been under pressure for much of this season due to some disappointing results in the Premier League, and a decision could now be made in the summer depending on the availability of the West Ham board's replacement candidates. Reports today suggest that former Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup is being considered, while a club insider believes Di Matteo is also high on their list of targets. The Italian has been out of work since being dismissed by Chelsea early last season, but his sacking was seen as unfair by many after he guided the Blues to the Champions League just months earlier. ...
Mourinho sympathetic to sacked managers' plight Jose Mourinho once again expressed sympathy for Andre Villas-Boas after Tim Sherwood was appointed Tottenham head coach. Villas-Boas worked under Mourinho at Chelsea and Inter Milan before focusing on his own managerial career, which has now seen him sacked by Chelsea and Spurs. Spurs replaced Villas-Boas with Sherwood, who is without managerial experience, much the same way in which Mourinho was succeeded by Avram Grant when his first spell ended in September 2007 and his fellow Portuguese by Roberto Di Matteo in March 2012. Grant led Chelsea to the 2008 Uefa Champions League final and Di Matteo went one better after taking over from Villas-Boas, lifting the European Cup. Mourinho declined the opportunity to appraise Sherwood, though. "That is not my problem," Mourinho said. "My only problem is to feel sorry that one manager lost his job a couple of days before Christmas where he was completely enthusiastic about going forward with his contract at Tottenham ...

Di Matteo Lined Up As Di Canio replacement Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio has just two games to save his job before they move for Roberto Di Matteo, according to reports. The Metro suggests that the Italian boss will be given just two games, both incredibly tough fixtures against Liverpool and Manchester United, before he is given the axe. Sunderland sit bottom of the Premier League table with a solitary point after losing 3-0 to West Bromich Albion on Saturday, their fourth loss from five games. To add to their woes, star striker Steven Fletcher came off after a nasty fall holding his shoulder with 15 minutes to go at the Hawthorns. The article suggests that Sunderland chairman Ellis Short will not accept relegation to the Championship and is willing to make the change early if the team’s form doesn’t improve. Di Matteo seems to be the favourite for the job having left Chelsea at the back end of last year, despite having won the Champions League with the club. -Donut

Chelsea 2013: 4-2-3-1 A Shift Away From Paragmatism Chelsea owe a lot to the “parking the bus” formation introduced by Jose Mourinho and continued by fan favorite Roberto Di Matteo last season; it gave us our maiden piece of silverware in Europe’s most elite club competition. It encouraged the wingers to revert from the high- pressing style of Andre Villas-Boas to a more conservative theme. Di Matteo emphasized the importance of tracking back once possession was lost; A key reason why Ryan Bertrand was deployed on the left wing in the Champions League final in Munich. This formation did not give much consideration to the attacking players around at the time as Daniel Sturridge, a prime example, was not adept to defending or retrieving the ball deep in his own half. Juan Mata was also forced to adjust and it became visible towards the last month or so of last season that he was running out of steam. It was obvious why Ramires and Kalou were used on the flanks in the Fa Cup semi-final tie with Spurs; ...

Desailly: Abramovich sacking policy has worked wonders for Chelsea.Former Chelsea captain Marcel Desailly has defended the sacking policy of Blues owner Roman Abramovich. Desailly insists the Russian's approach has proved successful. He told The Sun: “Not every club has an Alex Ferguson or an Arsene Wenger. “Chelsea have an owner in Roman Abramovich who as soon as he detects some mistakes wants to change things and move on. When he sacked Andre Villas Boas people thought why hasn’t he given a young manager more time to express himself. “But then Di Matteo came in and won the Champions League so people at the club need to accept the way Abramovich works.”
José Mourinho seriously considering a return to Chelsea José Mourinho managed Chelsea from 2004-07, during which time he won two Roman Abramovich's chances of convincing José Mourinho to relieve him from the repercussions of serial managerial sackings are dependent on Chelsea's owner ceding control of soccer matters to the Portuguese coach. According to close friends, Mourinho is seriously considering a proposal to return to Stamford Bridge this summer, yet wants to do so only if key powers are restored to the manager. Chelsea's transfer policy and significant aspects of team selection -- including the deployment of £50 million record signing Fernando Torres -- have been driven by Abramovich in recent seasons, greatly contributing to the difficulties faced by Carlo Ancelotti, Andre Villas-Boas and Roberto Di Matteo. Though trophies have been won under the structure -- Di Matteo guiding the club to a Champions League and Fa Cup double a mere three months after being promoted to "interim first team coac ...
Dan Levene: Who is responsible for Rafael Benitez ending up as Chelsea manager? Benitez was appointed 'interim' manager on 21st November, a few hours after Roberto Di Matteo was sacked as Blues boss. I have it on extremely good authority that Chelsea's negotiations with Benitez go back to March 2012 – when the club was keen to appoint him successor to Andre Villas-Boas. At the time, the then caretaker boss Di Matteo's team was greeted at a Fa Cup replay at Birmingham with chants of: “Rafa Benitez – you're not wanted here.” There was speculation back then that a tentative approach had been made, but the club back-tracked due to fan hostility. Subsequently it has become clear, again via very senior sources, that the only reason Benitez didn't get the job in March was that he refused to come in as an interim. Fan opposition had nothing to do with it. Di Matteo carried on, winning the Fa Cup and Champions League, but even then the club made a second approach to Benitez in the summer. The former Liverp ...
BREAKING: Chelsea insist that the original image of this season's squad, posing with the European Cup, was taken down because Di Matteo is no longer Chelsea manager, but the photo has been replaced with one that includes departed Blues players Jose Bosingwa and Didier Drogba, as well as outcast Florent Malouda. The club have also said that Di Matteo is pictured in another area of the West Stand concourse, with the Fa Cup. Well, that's the thanks you get for finally guiding Chelsea to Champions League glory!!
DOES CHELSEA HATE RDM?... Chelsea have removed a picture of former boss Roberto Di Matteo posing with the Champions League trophy from Stamford Bridge's iconic West Stand wall. The image, which depicted the Italian and his players in a traditional squad photo complete with silverware, has been replaced with a shot of Blues stars celebrating following their Champions League success last term. Di Matteo led the West London club to two trophy successes last season after taking over from the sacked Andre Villas-Boas in March. Those wins did not prove sufficient for the 42-year-old to keep his job during a poor run of form earlier this term, however, as he was replaced by current interim coach Rafael Benitez.
This is shocking, what a horrible classless club Chelsea are Becoming!... From Eurosport's paper round! Benitez will soon become a quickly-forgotten piece of Chelsea's history - much as is the case with Roberto Di Matteo already, according to the Daily Mail. The paper reports that Di Matteo has been "airbrushed out of history" after a picture outside Stamford Bridge of him with the Champions League trophy was replaced by one of the players alone with the trophy, and Di Matteo nowhere in sight.
'Fans won't come back till Benitez has gone', insists Chelsea supporters' group The organisation's chairman warns the club is in "turmoil" and that, while they "appreciate" what Roman Abramovich has given to the Blues, the Spaniard is "not the right fit" Chelsea are in "danger of losing the soul of the club" while Rafa Benitez continues as interim manager, according to the chairman of the club's supporters' group. The Former Liverpool boss was put in charge at Stamford Bridge back in November after Roberto Di Matteo was relieved of his post, just six months after winning the Champions League. Many followers of the West London outfit have refused to get behind the new manager, though, and instead continue to chant "there's only one Di Matteo" after the 16th minute of matches, representing the number he wore at the club. Despite a good start on the pitch, including an 8-0 mauling of Aston Villa, recent results have seen the Blues lose to bitter rivals, and Premier League strugglers, QPR, as well as suffer d ...
Blackburn Rovers have identified Roberto Di Matteo as the man they want to succeed Henning Berg and are already in the process of replacing the Norwegian’s backroom team, Goal.com can reveal. Berg was relieved of his duties on Tuesday night after Rovers’ 1-0 defeat at Middlesbrough brought an end to his 57-day reign as Steve Kean's successor. The likelihood of Champions League winner Di Matteo accepting the job remains remote, while the early bookies' favourite Mark Hughes – a former manager at Ewood Park – has distanced himself from the post. The Blackburn hierarchy were on Wednesday already sorting out a management team for the weekend’s game against Barnsley, and met with former Aston Villa coach Kevin MacDonald in order to try and rubber stamp his appointment as caretaker boss. MacDonald is set to be joined by Judan Ali, described as a rising star in coaching, and a man whose cause global advisor Shebby Singh championed when Kean left the club. It is understood that Alex Mcleish was discuss ...
BREAKING: Roberto Di Matteo to be appointed new Valencia manager Former Chelsea manager, Roberto Di Matteo has reportedly flown to Valencia to take over as the new manager, just two days following the sacking of former manager, Mauricio Pellegrino. By Tom Conn Following Valencia’s 2-5 loss to Real Sociedad last Saturday evening, an emergency board meeting was held by club president, Manuel Llorente, while Pellegrino was giving post-match comments to the media. After the press conference, Pellegrino found Llorente in the locker room waiting to give him the news of his dismissal, to which Pellegrino went into a rage, calling Llorente “spineless”. Inside Spanish football has learned that Di Matteo has landed in Valencia to workout the final details of a contract that will see the Champions League winning manager remain the first team coach through the end of the season, with the contract expiring in June. At that point, they will then discussed the terms of an extension, or work out their candidate for ...
Guardiola believes Chelsea's owner is too 'trigger-happy' to be his boss Rate this item1 2 3 4 5 (0 votes) Pep Guardiola believes Roman Abramovich is too 'trigger-happy' as Chelsea's owner to offer him the security he wants when he returns to management next year, according to sources close to the Former Barcelona coach. Guardiola, 41, is the most coveted manager in football and Abramovich has made no secret that he wants the Spaniard at Stamford Bridge when his year away from the game ends next summer. Last week, Chelsea's owner sacked Roberto Di Matteo, who had led the club to their Champions League triumph, and appointed Former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez as manager until the end of the season. But with major clubs queuing up to speak to Guardiola and offer him a return to the game, Di Matteo's sacking has made it less, not more, likely that he will listen to Abramovich's overtures. 'When he does return, Pep will want stability and the events of the past few days shows again that Chelsea are not a club ...
Torres increasingly isolated at Chelsea over Abramovich favouritism Chelsea striker Fernando Torres is finding himself isolated inside the Blues locker room. The Daily Star Sunday says Torres is a total outcast at Chelsea – with many of his team-mates sick and tired of the ‘special treatment’ the £50million flop receives from Roman Abramovich. Long before Roberto Di Matteo was ruthlessly sacked last week – seemingly for dropping the Spanish striker against Juventus – Blues players were fuming over the favouritism shown to the club’s record buy by its Russian owner. Senior Stamford Bridge stars reckon that Torres is one of the reasons for the dismissal of popular coach Di Matteo six months after the Italian led the club to Champions League and Fa Cup glory. But if that was not bad enough, they also believe new boss Rafa Benitez – appointed on Wednesday against the supporters’ wishes – is only in the job because of his past work with Torres at Liverpool. A source close to the Chelsea camp ...
Petr Cech claims Roberto Di Matteo will 'always be a huge part of the history' of Chelsea despite being relieved of his managerial duties just three months into the 2012/13 campaign. Having guided the Blues to Fa Cup and Uefa Champions League glory last season while filling the coaching void on an interim basis, Di Matteo was offered a permanent deal over the summer. A bright start to the club's Premier League title bid bode well, but the wheels soon started to come off at home and abroad and Chelsea are now six points adrift of the league leaders and struggling to mount a successful defence of their European crown. Di Matteo has paid the price for an alarming wobble, with Rafael Benitez asked to steady the ship, but Cech claims the former Italy international will always be held in high regard at Stamford Bridge for all he achieved during two spells as a player and boss. "He will always be a huge part of the history of this club with all he has achieved as a player and manager," Cech told the Mail on Sund ...
Roberto Mancini has warned his Manchester City players that Chelsea will be at their most dangerous this weekend under new manager Rafael Benitez. City travel to Stamford Bridge on Sunday hoping to put the disappointment of their Champions League exit behind them. Mancini’s team are unbeaten in the league this season but lost for the first team in the league last season when they travelled to Chelsea in December. City Manager Mancini said: 'When a club changes manager they are always very difficult in the next game. 'Chelsea were a good team under Roberto Di Matteo and they will be a good team under Benitez. 'They have very good players and have played some fantastic football this season. Not so long ago they were top of the league.' As a manager who operates under extreme pressure himself, Mancini said this morning that he felt sorry for Di Matteo, sacked on Wednesday. Mancini said: 'He won the Champions League a few months ago but this is our life. 'When you make the choice to be a manager you know at ...

The Real Madrid coach laughed with one of his former players upon hearing the news that his old rival had been appointed Roberto Di Matteo's successor at Chelsea Jose Mourinho and Maicon have been caught on camera mocking Rafa Benitez and his move to Chelsea. The pair - who worked alongside one another when the Portuguese was in charge of Inter - spoke in the aftermath of Real Madrid's 1-1 draw with Manchester City. Mourinho and Benitez had a stormy relationship when the Blancos boss was at Chelsea and the Spaniard in charge of Liverpool. And after Wednesday's Champions League encounter Mourinho was informed of the breaking news at Stamford Bridge and shared a joke with Maicon regarding the move. "Your friend Benitez is going to Chelsea," the Brazilian said to Mourinho, according to La Sexta. The 49-year-old responded: "The fat one? Well then Materazzi should be his assistant." Materazzi had previously revealed how Benitez made him tear down newspaper cuttings from his locker of victories with Mourinho an ...
Roberto Di Matteo has accepted the blame for Chelsea's 3-0 loss to Juventus on Tuesday which could see the Blues become the first Champions League holders not to progress past the group stage.

Di Matteo has come under pressure in recent weeks and his woes were compounded when Chelsea suffered a 2-1 loss to West Brom at the weekend. The Italian sent a warning to his underperforming players by dropping Fernando Torres from the starting line-up in Turin, but the change in tactics proved ineffective and Di Matteo has taken responsibility for the loss. "I'm responsible for the result. I'm responsible for the performance. It's a negative evening for us," he said. "If anyone has to take the blame, it's me. I s ...
vember 2012 07:09 Manchester City visit Chelsea on Sunday, as two giants in flux clash in English Premier League action. Both clubs have had weeks they would rather forget, City bundled out of the Champions League before the knockout stages and Chelsea close to elimination after disappointing midweek results. The fall-out was particularly savage in West London, with Roberto Di Matteo - just six months removed from guiding the club to their greatest ever triumph in lifting the Champions League - sacked in favour of Former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez after their 3-0 loss to Juventus. Chelsea still have a chance to reach the knockout stages, if they beat Nordsjaelland at home on matchday six and Juve lose to Shakhtar Donetsk. Nevertheless, the latest European defeat saw Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich dismiss Di Matteo, with a laboured 3-2 home win over Shakhtar their only victory from the past five matches in all competitions.

Rafael Benitez Chelsea interim boss Rafa Benitez will ignore any fans' protests and focus solely on winning his first game in charge. The Spaniard, who spent six years as Liverpool manager, has been handed a short-term contract until the end of the season at Stamford Bridge following the dismissal of Roberto Di Matteo. The 52-year-old will be officially unveiled at a press conference at 5.30pm on Thursday, but spoke to Sky Sports News reporters as he arrived at Euston Station this lunchtime. When asked why he had agreed to return to football with the Blues, Benitez said: "I think it's a top side who want to challenge for trophies. We will think about one game at a time so we'll just try to win the next game."

LONDON (AFP) – Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger accused Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich of failing to show loyalty to Roberto Di Matteo after the Italian was sacked just months after winning the Champions League.
Roberto Di Matteo has insisted it was "an honor" to have managed Chelsea, following his sacking on Wednesday morning. The Italian was shown the door by Roman Abramovich just hours after the Blues were beaten 3-0 by Juventus to leave their Champions League hopes hanging by a thread. Rafael Benitez has been hired as the 42-year-old's replacement, while the former midfielder has hailed last season's European triumph with the Blues as the greatest achievement of his entire career. In a statement released via the League Managers Association, Di Matteo said: "It was an honor for me to be appointed manager of a club that I loved playing for and one that is so close to my heart. "I am extremely proud of the successes and trophies that we were able to bring to the club in recent months. "Lifting Chelsea's first Champions League trophy, in Munich, was the best achievement in club history and without doubt the highlight of my career to date, both as a player and manager.

Benitez tiptoes onto Chelsea tightrope MANCHESTER, United Kingdom (AFP) – Freshly appointed as Chelsea’s latest interim coach, Rafael Benitez could be forgiven for wondering whether he has accepted a poisoned chalice. The dismissal of Roberto Di Matteo on Wednesday means eight coaches have now been and gone during the nine-year tenure of trigger-happy owner Roman Abramovich. Benitez, 52, arrives with a rich pedigree, albeit almost two years since his last managerial role at Inter Milan, but in order to land the job full-time, he must contend with Abramovich’s notorious impatience. Since Jose Mourinho left in 2007 after three hugely successful years, only Carlo Ancelotti has managed to complete a full season in the Chelsea dug-out. Di Matteo may have delivered the Champions League trophy to Stamford Bridge for the very first time last season, but a return of two wins from eight matches in October and November proved too much for Abramovich to stand. In his quest for on-pitch perfection, the Russian b ...
 As declared on the Chelsea official website on Wednesday, Rafael Benitez has been appointed as the replacement for sacked manager Roberto Di Matteo. As quickly as Roberto was fired, Rafa was brought in—and in less than 12 hours—Chelsea had a new interim manager. Interim—the first clue that Benitez hasn’t been brought in by Roman Abramovic for the long term. Abramovic made it clear that he was happy to wait for Pep Guardiola to finish his 12-month sabbatical before trying to convince him to come to Stamford Bridge. In fact it was even suggested that Di Matteo was only on a one year contract as Roman waited it out for the ex-Barca boss (Mirror Football). What is there to suggest that Benitez hasn’t been offered that exact same opportunity? Rafael has the attitude and personality to believe he can change things at the Bridge, and rightly so. He has had many high profile jobs, such as Valencia, Liverpool and Inter Milan, and has won a Champions League, two La Ligas and an Fa Cup during his time ...
Only six months and two days ago Di Matteo was celebrating delivering the first Champions League crown in the club’s history. Today he is packing his belongings and saying his goodbyes Juan Mata, Eden Hazard and Oscar are brought in for a combined £80 million, being a billionaire’s play-thing feels pretty good. Only on days like this is the heartlessness and senselessness of it all dwelt upon. Had Abramovich elected to buy Tottenham back in 2003, Chelsea would almost certainly have been consumed by their crippling debts in the manner of Leeds United "For Chelsea fans there is no choice to be made, and they await his next move."" Di Matio left de gloden fish for a tillapia"
(continued) The ramifications of that loss continue to rumble on, however, with the club alleging referee Mark Clattenburg using inappropriate language towards John Obi Mikel, with the Football Association forced to investigate. NOVEMBER 2012 And so to November and the final days of Di Matteo's reign. A 3-2 victory over Shakhtar Donetsk was the Italian's sole victory in the month with disappointing draws against Swansea and Liverpool sowing seeds of discontent. A defeat at West Brom last time out was not the way Di Matteo would have wanted his side to prepare for their trip to Turin and so it proved with the Blues beaten 3-0 defeat in Juventus. That loss made it two defeats out of two, left the club's Champions League hopes hanging by a thread, and most importantly proved to be the final straw for Abramovich. With Di Matteo now gone, the early favourites to replace the Italian are Rafael Benitez and Harry Redknapp as, for now, the saga continues. Best of Luck 2 chelsea in all dia future endeavours

Roberto Di Matteo was a brave man for making it clear to all of Europe that his boss, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, made a 50-million pound mistake in the shape of super-flop striker Fernando Torres. Dropping Torres to the subs' bench for a Champions League game Chelsea couldn't afford to lose was a damning statement on the Spanish international. It was also a necessary one, because Torres has consistently failed in nearly two years at the London club to do what was promised on the packaging: score important goals. Rather than absorb Di Matteo's message, Abramovich shot the messenger. Di Matteo is out, abruptly shown the revolving door at Chelsea that has now swallowed eight managers in nine years. Abramovich can argue that chopping and changing so frequently has worked. Since the billionaire bought Che ...
Let's not feel too sorry for Di Matteo. The man essentially rode the crest of a gargantuan wave of good fortune and ended up an improbably Champions League winner. His managerial experience up until last season consisted of a spell at MK Dons followed by an unsuccessful spell at West Brom. Never had the experience or the talent for such a high profile role.
We are third in the Premier League, where most expected us to finish, still have a chance in the Champions League and are still in the Capital One Cup. Hardly a crisis. Di Matteo had a bond with the club like no other and he was making the transition gradually and had the support of the players. Abramovich has sacked Di Matteo, not Chelsea. Not happy!

Speaking in a post-match press conference the Chelsea boss took the blame for the costly defeat that leaves the Champions League holders hopes of qualification from the group stage hanging by a thread. Di Matteo had gambled tactically by leaving misfiring striker Fernando Torres out of the Turin starting lineup, a decision which meant that Chelsea began the game without a recognised centre-forward. "I decided to reinforce midfield and control the left side. I didn't want to give the (Juventus) centre backs a reference point," Di Matteo told reporters. "The first good chance fell to us, Oscar had a second one, Mata found himself in front of the goal, in transition we were dangerous and created chances. The first goal was lucky for Juventus, there was a big deflection. In tight games, the first goal is a lot of times decisive," he said. With rumours beginning to fly that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich may look to replace his coach with Former Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez or Former Chelsea caretaker Avra ...
Regardless of Roberto Di Matteo’s departure, Chelsea’s defeat by Juventus was a reminder they are a club in transition. Di Matteo was not the one insisting on a more attacking style. He did not create the problem of Fernando Torres’s form. Nor was the Italian solely responsible for shaping a squad with a lack of holding midfielders and defensive cover. These decisions were taken by Roman Abramovich and his advisers. Yet Di Matteo was today made the fall guy as soon as Chelsea faltered. And they faltered in spectacular fashion against a supremely talented Juventus side to leave Champions League qualification uncertain. Chelsea’s switch from containers to entertainers was never going to be a quick process. They were overtly defensive in forging a path to a maiden success in Europe’s premier competition last season and during this campaign they have been almost gung *** with a vibrantly attacking style. Last night, they were neither. Di Matteo was instructed to win with flair but his 4-2-3-1 system ...

Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo is considering whether to drop striker Fernando Torres ahead of the Blues' crunch Champions League clash with Juventus tomorrow. It was deja vu for one of football's most trigger-happy club today as Di Matteo became the latest Blues manager to face serious questions about his job security following a slump in results. And defeat in tomorrow night's huge Group E encounter in Turin could lead to his exit. Speculation is rife Di Matteo has finally lost patience with Torres after hauling him off during Saturday's Barclays Premier League defeat at West Brom after another miserable performance. The Chelsea boss admitted after the game he would consider dropping the Spain striker but said tonight: ``I'm not going to disclose my ideas about tomorrow. ``I'll make the final decisions tonight.'' Ashley Cole should return after recovering from his hamstring injury, as should several other rested players but John Terry (knee) and Frank Lampard (calf) were left in London. Defeat would lea ...

WAR CRY ... Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo Rob tells Blues to carry on fighting From MARK IRWIN in Turin Published: 1 hr ago 4 Roberto Di Matteo has told his warring Chelsea stars to carry on arguing after Saturday’s dressing-room row at The Hawthorns. The Blues will virtually be out of the Champions League if they lose at Juventus tonight and under- fire boss Di Matteo said: “Saturday wasn’t the first time there have been raised voices in the dressing room and I have always encouraged the players to express themselves. “We demand a lot of ourselves and we were very disappointed and frustrated with the defeat at West Brom. “So it was good to see the way the players reacted. We don’t want people to accept poor performances. “It’s important we communicate with each other and now it’s important we show the commitment that is necessary for the game we have to play against Juventus.” Centre-half Gary Cahill was equally candid about the heated inquest at West Brom. He said: “In the short s ...
Poor defending upsets Di Matteo 17 November 2012 22:34 Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo labelled his team's defending 'poor' after their 2-1 loss to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday. Goals from Shane Long and Peter Odemwingie helped West Brom to their sixth home win of the season after Eden Hazard had equalised for the visitors at the Hawthorns. Di Matteo rued his side's defensive display after the loss, which saw Chelsea's winless run in the English Premier League extended to four. "It's a ground we find difficult to win at – both last season and this season. We know that they are very good at home," he said. "Given the way that we conceded goals like we did today, then it becomes difficult to win the game. "You have to score three goals to win the game. Our defending was poor today. We didn't concede many chances to them, but the ones we did, we had to do better." Chelsea could yet find it difficult to return to winning ways in November with league matches against Manchester City and Fulham – both ...
Roberto Di Matteo would like Radamel Falcao and his focus will be a striker in January’s transfer window. Chelsea have been linked with the Atletico Madrid player, who has a £48million release clause in his contract. Speaking about the 26-year-old Colombian international ahead of today’s trip to West Brom, Di Matteo said: “Falcao is one of the best strikers, probably, in European and world football. “His ratio of goals per game is quite impressive, not just this season but over the last three years, at Porto and Atletico Madrid. “If you ask any manager, he’d have him in his team. But we don’t really comment on transfer rumours or speculation. Whatever we do we’ll keep it behind closed doors.” The love is mutual. Falcao could not have made his feelings clearer about a possible move to the Premier League, saying: “Chelsea are champions of Europe and there is not much more to say than that. “Even after winning the Champions League, they still go and sign players of the highest quality. ...
Roberto Di Matteo insists John Terry is still Chelsea's "captain and leader" but has warned that does not make the defender immune from his squad rotation policy. Di Matteo sprang a huge surprise on Wednesday Night by leaving Terry on the bench for the Blues' Champions League victory over Shakhtar Donetsk, citing a lack of match fitness after the 31-year-old was limited to only one competitive outing in a month due to his domestic four-match racism ban. It was arguably the first truly big game their skipper had missed when fit and available for almost a decade, but Di Mattteo said: "He's certainly a fantastic player for us and he will continue to be so and continue to be our captain and our leader when he plays."
Chelsea have announced a profit of £1.4 million for the accounting year ending June 2012, the first time a surplus has been achieved since Roman Abramovich took ownership nine years ago. - Terry back for Blues, Cole out Russian billionaire Abrmaovich has plundered a significant portion of his own fortune into the Blues since arriving at Stamford Bridge in 2003 and this May finally ended a long wait for continental success when Roberto Di Matteo led Chelsea to Champions League glory. That triumph, coupled with new sponsorship deals and "significant profits... in the transfer market" has helped the club, so used to operating in the red, to a landmark profit. Di Matteo expressed his delight at the news, saying: "We're in favour of Financial Fair Play. We're doing everything in our power to comply with the new rules, and this is great news for the club. "For the first time, we've been able to achieve a profit - also thanks to the success on field, but off field as well, with new sponsor deals and also the tr ...

Roberto Di Matteo has admitted Chelsea have been missing John Terry after their defensive problems deepened ahead of the Barclays Premier League game at Swansea. The European Champions were all over the place at the back in Wednesday Night's dramatic Capital One Cup win over Manchester United and were hardly any better in Sunday's first league defeat of the season against the same opponents. They have now conceded 11 goals in just four games since Terry began his domestic racism ban, although the Chelsea captain did play in one of them when he started their Champions League defeat at Shakhtar Donetsk. Terry serves the final instalment of his ban on Saturday, while manager Di Matteo revealed fellow defender David Luiz would almost certainly miss the Swansea game though injury. That would mean Branislav Ivanovic being pressed into centre-back service in a new-look defence that would almost certainly see right-back Cesar Azpilicueta handed his full league debut, with Ashley Cole returning from injury on the ...
Super Sunday Sports Blog Chelsea have been in the news for all the wrong reasons since winning the 2011 Champions League title with a determined but far from inspiring style. Roberto Di Matteo has remained in charge of the Blues. Hazard and Oscar have joined the European Champions over the summer and under Di Matteo's watchful eye have linked well with Mata to finally deliver what their Russian Oligarch owner has long been demanding. a fast, fluid, eleven man style of total football. Remember, however, that the back story this summer and so far this season has involved John Terry being discredited as a witness in a criminal case, being fined by the FA and losing ( resigning ) the captaincy of England as he ceases to be available for International duty... all because he racially abused a fellow footballer.

Di Matteo disappointed at lack of Chelsea recognition for Ballon d’Or Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo admits he is disappointed by FIFA’s lack of Ballon d’Or recognition for players from his club. Only former Blue Didier Drogba was selected in the 23-man shortlist for the individual award and the Italian manager feels that is not enough considering his side won the Champions League. “That is a bit disappointing because as the winners of the Champions League you would have expected it to recognise the performances of our players,” he told the club's official website . “It is a hard one to explain, I'm not sure if they look a lot at the international games as well.”
By Mark OgdenLast Updated: 3:35PM GMT 28/10/2012 Sir Alex Ferguson has challenged Manchester United to end their 10-year search for a Premier League victory at Stamford Bridge to deliver a signal of intent in what he believes has already become a three-horse race for the title. United last claimed all three points at Chelsea with a 3-0 win in April 2002. Roman Abramovich might have seen Ferguson’s team deny him a Champions League title in Moscow in 2008, but when it comes to league business, Chelsea’s Russian owner has still to see United spoil an afternoon at Stamford Bridge. United’s rivals have come and gone during Ferguson’s 26-year reign as manager, but none have been a source of irritation to the Scot quite like Chelsea. Even when the current European Champions were little more than First Division also-rans at the outset of Ferguson’s Old Trafford career, Chelsea’s ability to prove a thorn in United’s side was already well established. “They have had a terrific record against us sinc ...
Di Matteo was facing the press ahead of Sunday's encounter with Manchester United, and conceded that Lampard will miss the game at Stamford Bridge. The England midfielder aggravated the pre-existing injury in Tuesday's 2-1 Champions League defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk and will miss the return leg, in addition to the United clash. Di Matteo told reporters: "He is going to be out for a few weeks. He's got a calf problem, so we will miss him and it's a big loss for us. "Apart from him everybody else is fit. Marko Marin might be in the squad for Sunday." The 34-year-old had already been forced to sit out England's World Cup Qualifiers against San Marino and Poland in a bid to recover quickly from the injury, but only lasted 15 minutes against Shakhtar in the Ukraine before being withdrawn. Lampard has played in seven Premier League matches this season, scoring three goals so far.

If, as seems likely, Chelsea have to do without John Terry for at least four domestic games in the near future, then Gary Cahill and David Luiz will need to form a far more solid partnership than was evident in the 4-0 Champions League victory away to Nordsjaelland in Copenhagen on Tuesday.
Di Matteo: Everybody makes mistakes 11 hours ago Roberto Di Matteo insists everyone deserves a second chance after John Terry was found guilty of using racist language towards Anton Ferdinand. Chelsea boss Di Matteo refused to comment specifically on the outcome of Terry's Football Association hearing when giving his reaction to it on Friday afternoon. But asked if he believed in second chances, he said: "Yes, I do. I'm sure you've made some mistakes in your life. Me too." Some might argue Terry has had plenty of second chances in a career that has been defined by his defiance in the face of adversity. Pressed on why his captain repeatedly found himself at the centre of a storm, Di Matteo invoked the slogan famously printed on a T-shirt worn by another controversial player. "That's a good question to ask Mario Balotelli - 'Why always me?'" he joked. "That's a question you'd have to ask John." Terry is still awaiting the full written judgment of the independent FA panel, which his lawyers will pore over be ...

hmmm...Di Matteo backs misfiring Torres 22 Sep 2012 12:22:35 Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo has leapt to the defence of Spaniard Fernando Torres amid criticism that the misfiring striker has barely managed a shot on target in his last three matches. Torres, who joined Chelsea from Liverpool for £50 million in January 2011, had been slated by former team boss Ruud Gullit who said it felt "like Chelsea are playing with 10 men" after Wednesday's Champions League draw with Juventus. But Di Matteo said: "We're happy with him (Torres). Even when he doesn't score, he provides and works hard for the team and he's always an outlet for us. "At the moment, there is no issue for us. "He's full of confidence and he's playing and he's playing well and he's scoring goals; not in the last couple of games but he's scored. "He's always busy, keeping defenders busy and moving and doing the right stuff. I don't see any problem you are talking about." With Daniel Sturridge out injured, Torres is currently Chelsea's only reco ...

Chelsea make plans for Pirlo Roberto Di Matteo has urged Chelsea to keep a close eye on Juventus playmaker Andrea Pirlo in tonight's Champions League opener. Pirlo was one of the stars of this summer's Euro 2012 tournament, helping Italy reach the final, and his switch to Juve has added more threat to a side that marched to the Serie A title last season. Di Matteo believes the visitors are filled with attacking talent, but admits his side must snuff out the veteran in the Group E opener at Stamford Bridge.
This week, Roberto Di Matteo faces his most difficult tactical dilemma since winning the Champions League this past May: how can he prevent Andrea Pirlo dominating when Juventus travels to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday evening?
Roberto Di Matteo says Chelsea's bid to retain Champions League is Mission Impossible
Talisman needed: Fernando Torres must step up to the plate in Didier Drogba's absence when Chelsea return to Champions League action
On the eve of our first Champions League fixture since being crowned European Champions last May, Roberto Di Matteo stressed that this season's competition will be even more difficult to win given the calibre of potential opponents. Exactly four months to the day since we overcame Bayern Munich, the Blues begin the defence of our crown, and a bid to become the first team to retain the trophy, against Italian champions Juventus at Stamford Bridge. Over the course of 10 campaigns, we have never failed to qualify from the group stages of the tournament, but having been taken right to the final game last season, where a 3-0 win against Valencia eventually saw us through, Di Matteo is taking it one step at a time. 'The objective is always to get past the group, that's our first target,' he explained. 'Once we are through, it's two-legged games. 'We have three champions in our group, from Italy, Ukraine and Denmark, so it will be difficult. It's not just them; other teams who have joined the Champions League th ...

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas said: “Our door is always open to former players. “Malouda has been in contact with our coaching team recently. “We’ve also spoken with Jeremy Toulalan, who has been having problems at Malaga.”

Gabi: Falcao's the best finisher in the world (FIFA.com) Thursday 30 August 2012 Print Email my friend Share “Just thinking about it gives me goosebumps,” said Atletico Madrid captain Gabi, when asked if he could envisage himself holding aloft the UEFA Super Cup in Monaco on 31 August, the date of his team’s clash with Uefa Champions League holders Chelsea. Back in May, after Los Colchoneros' victory over Athletic Bilbao in the UEFA Europa League final in Bucharest, his captaincy duties were still shared with team-mate Antonio Lopez, who had lead the capital side on to the pitch for many years. Following the defender’s exit from the club, however, the armband was passed to Gabi, whose many tasks now include hoisting any trophies won by the team. “Because of the size and importance of the club, captaining Atletico is a huge responsibility," said the midfielder.

manager Roberto Di Matteo backs Branislav Ivanovic over red card Roberto Di Matteo insisted Kevin Friend’s decision to dismiss Branislav Ivanovic was the pivotal moment in Chelsea’s 3-2 defeat at Villa Park in Sunday's Community Shield and claimed there had been no intent from the Serbian international. Ivanovic is facing a three-match ban for his reckless challenge on Manchester City defender Aleksandar Kolarov late in the first half and it is unlikely Chelsea will appeal and risk a lengthier suspension. With Chelsea leading at the time, Ivanovic’s dismissal was undoubtedly the game-changer as the Champions League holders suffered a fourth successive defeat in pre-season, just a week ahead of their Premier League opener at Wigan Athletic. Fernando Torres appeared galvanised after his three goals at Euro 2012 and produced a wonderfully taken opening goal but it was the loss of Ivanovic that conspired to condemn Di Matteo to his first competitive defeat since being appointed permanent manager.

The Czech Republic goalkeeper shrugged off criticism in recent years to produce moments of brilliance for Chelsea in 2011-12. Petr Cech was one of Roberto Di Matteo's most important players during their triumphant Champions League campaign, as he pulled off a handful of superb stops against Barcelona in both legs of Chelsea's semi-final against the reigning champions, before then putting in a match-winning performance in the final against Bayern Munich. The 30-year-old not only saved a penalty from Arjen Robben in extra-time in Munich, he then went on to save two further spot-kicks in the penalty shoot-out to hand his side victory.

Roberto Di Matteo, an Italian, won the Champions League.. Roberto Mancini won the Premier League.. Guess its Italy's year
As goodbyes go, they simply don't get any more dramatic. With his last ever kick in a Chelsea shirt, Didier Drogba won the Champions League for the first time in our history, and the man who departs the club this summer after eight years service will be forever regarded as a Stamford Bridge legend. While the Ivorian has certainly enjoyed more productive seasons in terms of the amount of goals scored, few will be able to match the 2011/12 campaign for the significance and importance of his strikes. He began the season on the bench, with Andre Villas-Boas giving Fernando Torres the nod in attack, and didn't score a goal until he netted in the 4-1 win against Swansea at the end of September. Following the Spaniard's dismissal in the same game and subsequent three-game ban, the Ivorian was handed his chance, but a first-half red card during a fiery London derby at Queens Park Rangers ensured he would need to wait a little longer for the game time he so desperately craved.

Roberto Di Matteo has been faultless in his three months as temporary coach of Chelsea and the players will go all out to give him the Champions League trophy his efforts deserve, Frank Lampard said .
Resplendent in their adidas kits, both outfits were forced to reshuffle their XIs due to suspensions, but the biggest surprise came from Di Matteo, who unexpectedly began with 22-year-old left-back Ryan Bertrand in midfield for his first ever Champions League appearance.
Who would have thought that 34-year-old Didier Drogba, benched by coach Andre Villas-Boas, would be the hero of the Champions League final, scoring the tying goal and then the final penalty kick to make all the dreams of rich owner Roman Abramovich come true? Tactics, humility and intelligence played a major role. Inheriting a divided and defeated team, Di Matteo first had to restore harmony in his dressing room. Above all, he instilled in his team a warrior spirit and character, getting the most out of his players by making the forwards defend and the midfielders attack. Chelsea were not the most talented team in the Champions League but they were certainly the team that wanted to win the most. Hats off to this group of veteran warriors - Diego Amando Maradona

Chelsea players made it clear they wanted Roberto Di Matteo to be given the coach's job full-time after the Italian's whirlwind three months in charge ended with the Champions League trophy - the prize owner Roman Abramovich had craved the most.
An incredible night at the Allianz Arena saw Chelsea lift the Champions League trophy for the first-ever time after beating Bayern Munich on penalties. The odds were against the Blues playing at the Bavarian side's home with John Terry, Branislav Ivanovic, Ramires and Raul Meireles all suspended, but Roberto Di Matteo kept the opposition on their toes by springing a surprise selection, Ryan Bertrand starting his first European game on the left wing. Bayern confirmed their home advantage by making the early running but couldn't make their chances count until late on, when Thomas Muller opened the scoring despite a heroic defensive effort. But that man Didier Drogba popped up with two minutes of the 90 remaining to send the match to extra time at 1-1. There was another scare when Bayern were awarded a penalty after Franck Ribery went down in the area, but Petr Cech continued his own heroics by saving low to his left.

Not really. I was watching it dispassionately, curious as to how it would go. “But I’m delighted, for the club for Robbie and the fans. “The supporters were magnificent. Cech had a great game. Drogba was the man of extra time and Frank Lampard is a great captain.
Di Matteo's emotional family videos inspired Chelsea to Euro glory Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo pulled off a psychological masterstroke before victory in the Champions League final. The interim boss showed his squad a video of goodwill messages from their families edited with old video footage of them growing up and the early stages of their careers. "The messages were a surprise," Ryan Bertrand told the Daily Mail. "We were called into a meeting and there they were, every single player. "First, it was my mum and brother saying: 'Well done' and 'Good luck to the whole team'. Then it went to the rabble, the whole family, which was a Little Bit embarrassing. "There could have been some tears but there was a bit of laughter and banter and that really spurred us on. It was a brilliant touch." MyTake When things go well u go dey hear kindergarten stories
A tip to Chelsea owner Roman Abrahamovic. It is better for your team to keep Robbie Di Matteo as a full time manager. Remember 2 years ago, Jose Mourinho's Inter Milan won the Champions League beating Barcelona in the semis and Bayern Munich in the finals. Mourinho left Inter, Inter left champions league place. Now, Chelsea could go in the same direction as Inter Milan, if Di Matteo leaves the club. All the best! Cheers!

'Roberto Di Matteo asked if I could help him and I said I will help you always, with one leg, two legs, or with no body. I will go on to my pitch with my heart and I ran for all the minutes. Roberto has been a fantastic coach, and Andre Villas-Boas deserves it too as he has worked on this Champions League, and he is a fantastic coach too. We have won two titles with Di Matteo and he deserves a great futur The Brazilian highlighted a unity in the squad that saw them overcome so many difficult obstacles on the way to our first lifting of this trophy There was always belief,' he said, 'and this team plays together. 'I have fantastic team mates and a fantastic atmosphere every day in the training. The people outside always try to kill Chelsea - saying Chelsea is not a good team, Chelsea don't have the players, Chelsea are old players, Chelsea ...

Champions League winner Roberto Di Matteo last night emerged as a shock target for Aston Villa.
Fernando Torres said he expected to be selected in the starting XI for Chelsea's Champions League final against Bayern Munich, and revealed that he urged his team-mates to ditch their defensive tactics in Saturday's famous victory. - Blues to decide on duo - Terry backs Di Matteo - Di Matteo coy over future - Brewin: Home where the heart aches - Champions League Gallery Torres had to watch from the bench for 84 minutes as Chelsea were dominated by Bayern at the Allianz Arena. Thomas Muller's late opener proved the cue for the Spaniard's introduction, and Torres said it was a shock not to be picked by Roberto Di Matteo. "I was expecting to start,'' he said. "It was a big surprise for me, a big disappointment. But, in the final, the main thing is to win - it doesn't matter who plays.'' Torres' introduction alongside Didier Drogba helped drag Chelsea back into the match, with the former winning a corner from which the latter netted the Blues' equaliser. The game was eventually won on penalties. After 120 min ...

Change Will Come, but for Now Chelsea Celebrates By ROB HUGHES In sports, as in life, there is not always logic for why certain people end up the ultimate winners. Goal Roman Abramovich, orphaned as a child but now one of the world’s wealthiest men, stood high in the stands of Munich’s Allianz Arena as the clock approached midnight Saturday night. One by one, he greeted his Chelsea players with a hug and an almost boyish, bemused smile. “Thank you,” he said to several of them. When Roberto Di Matteo, the stop-gap coach who had turned Chelsea’s failure into triumph in less than three months, reached Abramovich, there was an especially effusive hug, and what looked suspiciously like a peck on the Italian’s cheek. “What I discuss with the boss, we don’t discuss publicly,” Di Matteo later said in the press room. “Whatever the future holds, I’ll accept. It’s not important.” It is paramount. Where Chelsea, its owner, its interim but instantly successful coach and its aging players go f ...
Di Matteo was sacked from West Brom. Came to Chelsea and won the CHAMPIONS LEAGUE
'Di Matteo deserves Chelsea job' Bayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes says Chelsea should make Roberto Di Matteo their permanent manager after he led the Blues to the Champions League
"Though I find it hilarious Di Matteo has won six UEFA games and got the cup. Contrast that to Arsene Wenger, who has contributed to over 200 UEFA games and may never win the cup he craves most of all (only manager to lose CWC, UEFa Cup and Champions League). Now that's luck".Although I am not a Chelsea fan,but what d club achieved in Munich is a football miracle,like Greece in 2004.but more like Borrusia Dortmund in 1997,who could not just be stopped along the way till they won the cup. Chlesea may never win again till d next century,but what they have done will remain 4ever in history as the first London club to win the Champions League (bcos history already has it dat Man United is d first English club to win it in the world!). I salute Chelsea, I salute Di Matteo, I salute hardwork, I salute Drogba, I salute courage, I salute football! no need for acrimony, Chelsea deserve their victory no matter how we want to look at it. Now the big question is after Liverpool, Man U, Aston Villa, Nottingham Forest& ...

Di Matteo some man, West Brom to Champions League and Fa Cup, Best Caretaker ever!!
Roberto Di Matteo NO manager in Champions League history has achieved so much in such a short reign as Di Matteo. His team came back from the dead against Napoli, survived the mother of all pummelings in Barcelona and battled against all the odds in Bayern’s backyard. RDM is now guaranteed legendary status at Stamford Bridge.
1.) Gary Cahill: 6 months at Chelsea and he's won the Fa Cup & Champions League. Robin Van Persie: 7 years at Arsenal, 0 trophies. 2.) I think Emile Heskey could score 40 goals in this Bayern Munich team judging by Mario Gomez's performance tonight... 3.) BREAKING NEWS: Chelsea fire Di Matteo as he failed to win the Carling Cup and Premier League. 3.) Man City fans now confused, do they go back to the darker shade of blue... 4.) Fernando Torres: scored goals at Liverpool, wins trophies at Chelsea. ...Jokes mixed with facts ☺
Like an Ancient Greek story. Today Chelsea prevailed when all of the odds were stacked againts them!!! Call it fate or destiny, but today the Blues showed what a solid group of men can acheive with the proper guidance!!! Di Matteo you won this Champions League, congrats you did even what the "Special One" couldnt
Plenty of tears on the pitch, with Roberto Di Matteo among the celebrations. Who would have thought a few months ago that Di Matteo and Eddie Newton would be Champions League winners? Amazing stuff.
Report: Di Matteo set to gamble on Ryan Bertrand in Champions League final - Goal.com
Interim Chelsea captain, Frank Lampard says Chelsea is set for the epic Champions League final against Bayern Munich. He admitted that playing in Germany will certainly give the Germans an edge, adding however that winning the coveted trophy away from home makes it even more exciting. He says difficult as it may seem, the feat is achievable if the Chelsea players believe in themselves. Manager, Di Matteo believes his wards have all the qualities needed to win d competition.
21.30 – The game moves into injury time, with Tyldesley now almost incomprehensible in his shrieking about "that night in Barcelona" and "what odds?". 21:35 – As the final whistle goes and Bayern win 3-2, Geoff Shreeves scampers towards Di Matteo to confirm that the Blues will definitely not be playing Champions League football next season, but is stopped in his tracks by Branislav Ivanovic, who knows Shreeves' intentions all too well and sends him flying with a slide tackle from behind.
Di Matteo urges veterans to take last CL chance Date Posted: May 16, 2012: 11:46 Source: ESPN .inShare.0Roberto Di Matteo has told his Chelsea veterans that this is likely to be their last chance to lift the Champions League trophy - and Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger admits the German side are concerned by that state of affairs. Ashley Cole, Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard are all the wrong side of 30, and if Chelsea do not beat Bayern in Saturday's final, they will not play in the competition next season - so the door is closing on that trio. "We've got a fantastic group with quality and experience and that has shown in games," Di Matteo said. "That's shown by them carrying us to this final. To reach a Champions League final is very, very difficult. "Even for younger players, they do not know when they'll have the chance again to be in a final like this. For some of our older players, it might be more difficult to be in another final, or win it." Meanwhile, Germany international Schwein ...

Roberto Di Matteo admits he had Saturday’s Champions League final in mind when he paired Didier Drogba with Fernando Torres in attack during Chelsea’s
Chelsea's Old Guard: The decision to sack Andre Villas-Boas has been made to look an inspired one by Chelsea's players, with the Blues winning the Fa Cup and making the Champions League final under the Portuguese's successor Roberto Di Matteo. However, I firmly believe it was Chelsea's players, specifically the so-called Old Guard, rather than Villas-Boas that was the problem. I don't doubt the former Porto boss made mistakes trying to change too much too soon, but I also don't doubt that some of the players did not try their hardest to make the changes work such was their disbelief and anger at being asked to do something different. The Blues have gone back to basics under Di Matteo and I can only applaud their turnaround, but there will come a time when Terry, Lampard, Drogba et al will have to accept they are no longer good enough to build a team around. But will their egos allow it? History suggests not.
