Pep Guardiola had already given his word to Bayern Munich that he would become their next manager before Roman Abramovich sacked Roberto Di Matteo as Chelsea boss, it has been claimed. Abramovich controversially gave Di Matteo the chop on November, before installing Rafael Benitez on an interim basis with the hope of convincing Guardiola to join Chelsea in the summer. But, according to the Daily Mail, Guardiola had at this point already begun a course in German lessons having told Bayern Munich that he would succeed Jupp Heynckes at the Allianz Arena in July. Guardiola reportedly booked his first lesson only days before Di Matteo was relieved of his duties at Chelsea, after informing Bayern chiefs verbally that Munich would be his next destination. Chelsea, had they made a formal approach for Guardiola, are likely to have offered the Former Barcelona manager a significantly better salary package were he to move to Stamford Bridge. But Guardiola was sold on the Bayern philosophy says the club's chairman Ka ...
There are contradictions with d FIFA awards. There should be a separate category for National team coaches because they don't play a lot of competitive game in a year. Di Matteo should have been considered along with Jurgen Klopp ahead of Pep Guardiola as well. Afterall Pep only won Copa del Rey!
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 ...
Man City baptism for Chelsea new man Benitez on NOVEMBER 24, 2012 · in SPORTS LONDON (AFP) – Rafael Benitez’s hopes of winning over the Chelsea supporters face a stern test when his new side take on champions Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. Chelsea fans have not universally welcomed Benitez’s appointment as Roberto Di Matteo’s interim successor, after the frequent spats that accompanied clashes between Benitez’s Liverpool and Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea. The Spaniard’s response has been to confidently declare he will gain acceptance through success on the pitch and there is no doubt victory over the reigning Premier League champions would be a step in the right direction. Benitez has been appointed until the end of the season but has talked of impressing the Chelsea hierarchy sufficiently to convince them to shelve any plans of pursuing Former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola, who has also been linked with a move to City. And the new manager has already received first-hand experience ...
Lionel Messi is confident his Former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola would be a success at Chelsea. The current Ballon d'Or holder believes that no matter where the Spaniard restarts his career he would be a hit. Chelsea have appointed former Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez as interim manager after Roberto Di Matteo's sacking and speculation is rife that the Former Barcelona manager will eventually succeed Benitez this summer. Messi has been full of praise for his former mentor, and believes wherever he opts to go, success will come to the sought-after manager. “Guardiola will be a success wherever he goes,” Messi told reporters. “He is widely recognised as one of the best coaches in the world. “For me he is the best coach in the world and wherever he goes he will be a success I have no doubt about that. He’ll go where he wants to go and good luck to him. “It’s difficult to judge the situation when you are not inside the club but Chelsea are a great club and with big clubs if you lose two gam ...

Roman Abramovich relieved Di Matteo of his duties on Wednesday morning despite the Italian guiding the club to their maiden Champions League trophy and a seventh Fa Cup last season. Di Matteo signed a two-year deal in the summer, but has seen his position questioned almost continually since with Pep Guardiola thought to wanted by the Russian oligarch to lead the club.
Di Matteo sacked and Benitez in! Have a look what bookmakers sent to Stamford Bridge yesterday
Tapestry enjoyed doing this vehicle wrap for As seen on the DailyMail. Taxi for Di Matteo!
Juve's manager Conte expresses his symphaty to Di Matteo & Pep Guardiola doesn't make decision to coaching a club until 2013 Cc:
I remember last season before chelsea sack AVB Chelsea play West Brom and loss d match later chelsea play Napoli in d champiom league and loss again, now Di Matteo also loss again West Brom and loss again Juventus another italy club and Di Matteo was sacked, my question is dat, do u think dat Rafa Benitez is a right coach 2 take over or Pep Guardiola.
Why is Abramovich so heartless & faithless, if he can sack Di Matteo, who won d first champion league for Chelsea which no Manager in chelsea history was able to win, even Jose Morinho wasn't able to win, hmmm, there is no manager he wil not sack even if Benitez do what matteo did for or even if He double it, He wil stil be sack, Where dos anybody think Chelseafc are edging ? What did Abramovich really need.?
Dis man is just after Pep Guardiola saa! Now,l don't know d magic Rafael Benitez wants to perform now.No how,Di Matteo will see anoda club soon.l believe dat.
￼ 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 ...

. But after suffering a similar fate to the Italian,Villas-Boas revealed how the Chelsea managerial job has become such a poisoned chalice. "At Chelsea I think another sacking is just like any other day at the office, that's my interpretation," the Spurs boss told Sky Sports . "Roberto has achieved so much in such a littleamount of time. His CV is maybe one of the best in the world now - he has won the Champions League and the Fa Cup too." Di Matteo has been replaced by former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez on an interim basis, as Abramovich searches for a permanent replacement. The Spaniard is the ninth manager in Abramovich's tenure, with Pep Guardiola and even Harry Redknapp thought to be among the favourites for the job. Villas-Boas endured a torrid time at Stamford Bridge and parted company with the Blues following a league defeat against West Bromwich Albion, but has settled into life wellat White Hart Lane. He added: "It was difficult for Robbie and I wish him well for the rest of his career. "Regar ...
Let us moveforward. RDM job in Chelsea is history for now. Take note: Rafael Benitez option to succeed Di Matteo is, on an interim basis. Ideally, Abramovich would like to appoint Pep Guardiola, the Former Barcelona manager, but it is unclear whether he would be available before the end of the season.
The truth is dat, Roman Abramovic did not trust Roberto Di Matteo, to deliver @ Chelsea. Roman was never impressed by the way the UCL was won last year. He felt Chelsea won by sheer luck and not Di Matteo's tactical ability. And dats why he's desperate for the apostle of Tiki-taka football, Pep Guardiola. Sorry to RDM and goodluck to him in the future.
LONDON -- Six months after guiding Chelsea to an unlikely Champions League title, Roberto Di Matteo was fired Wednesday with the team on the brink of becoming the first defending champion eliminated from the group stage. Di Matteo, who was hired on a permanent basis in June, was dismissed a day after a 3-0 loss to Juventus in Turin left Chelsea's title defense in tatters. Chelsea also is struggling in the Premier League,having picked up just two points from its last four games to fall to third place. "The team's recent performances and results have not been good enough and the owner and the board felt that a change was necessary now to keep the club moving in the right direction as we head into a vitally important part of the season," Chelsea said in a statement. There was no immediate announcement on a replacement for Di Matteo, but former Liverpool and Inter Milan coach Rafa Benitez has been heavily linked with the job. Pep Guardiola, currently on a break from coaching after leavingBarcelona at the end ...
Rafael Benitez is the favourite to take over from Roberto Di Matteo as Chelsea manager. The former Liverpool manager is flying to London from Abu Dhabi, where he was speaking at a sports conference, and is scheduled to land on Thursday. It is understood he will then hold further talks with Chelsea about taking over as manager, initially as a stop-gap appointment. Di Matteo was sacked following the 3-0 Champions League defeat by Juventus. Chelsea made contact with Benitez to gauge his interest in taking charge on a short-term basis. Owner Roman Abramovich is known to be a long-term admirer of Pep Guardiola but it is unclear whether the Former Barcelona coach can be tempted back into management. The club's board met earlier on Wednesday and their next appointment is likely to be a short-term role rather than a long-term replacement for Di Matteo. In the statement announcing Di Matteo's sacking on Wednesday morning, Chelsea said they hoped to announce a new manager "shortly". Chelsea, who are looking for a n ...

Today I lost faith In my club. 1] To treat Di Matteo like this is disgusting particularly after winning the Champions League/Fa Cup. 2] We lost to Man Utd by getting cheated. Conceded late to Swansea. And, were poor against Liverpool, West Brom, and against Juve. 3] Still we are only four points off the top of the league table. 4] Players need to perform. And let's not keep blaming Torres. He's had four bad games this season. He should have started last night as we had nothing through the middle. 5] This decision will only unsettle the players even more. 6] Ron Gourley and Bruce Buck please leave our club!! You've got rid Of a Chelsea legend after 9 Months. 7] Pep Guardiola please don't become our manager. It will only harm your CV. 8] BENITEZ! Please no!! Unless you can unlock Torres. 9] Thank you Roberto Di Matteo.
BREKING NEWS: WALE WANAOIPENDA CHELSEA SEMENI YENU BUT WAZUNGU WAMESEMA HAYA:- Roberto Di Matteo went from Champions League hero to zero as Chelsea crashed to a 3-0 defeat at Juventus and to the brink of an embarrassing exit from the competition. Di Matteo's biggest selection gamble since he took charge backfired as goals from Fabio Quagliarella, Arturo Vidal and Sebastian Giovinco left the Blues facing the prospect of becoming the first holders to depart the competition before Christmas. Chelsea slumped to third place in Group E with one match remaining and must win against Nordsjaelland in two weeks' time and hope Shakhtar Donetsk beat Juve, despite the Ukrainian side having qualified for the last 16 themselves tonight. That would be the equal of any let-off the European champions enjoyed en route to last season's astonishing Champions League triumph, which ultimately prevented owner Roman Abramovich dispensing with Di Matteo. With Pep Guardiola supposedly waiting in the wings, Di Matteo could find hims ...

Transfer Conspiracy Theory: Chelsea and the great gaffer hunt. I pigeonhole Roman Abramovich because it's fun to. I have no dirt on the guy. As far as billionaire megalomaniacs go, he seems pretty normal. Here goes... I was wrong to assume that Pep Guardiola would eventually join Chelsea. I think Roman and Jose are concocting a special plan to bring the Special One, I'm sorry, the 'ONLY' one, back to Stamford Bridge with none other than Cristiano Ronaldo in his pocket. Here's how it works - 1. Mourinho does not love Real Madrid. He says he does, but he doesn't. He loves Mourinho and I don't blame him. Roman Abramovich also loves Mourinho and knows that he is the surest ticket to European domination when Pep ends the soul search and returns to Barça. 2. Mourinho gets a fictional phone call from Roman. "Jose, come back and bring Ronaldo with you." Mourinho chuckles, calls Andre Villas Boas, and offers an olive branch by paying a respectable fee for Modric. He also demands the right of first refusal on all ...

Chelsea have assured Roberto Di Matteo he is not simply keeping the seat warm for Pep Guardiola after appointing the Italian as their permanent manager.
Chelsea have confirmed that Roberto Di Matteo will be the permanent (as much as you can be in Football) Chelsea manager at the start of the 2012/2013 season after being given a two year contract. This is relieving as Roman Abramovich has courted Pep Guardiola repeatedly over the last few months but finally Roberto has won the keys to the managers office at the Bridge. I am delighted for Di Matteo who has earned this deal by delivering the world to Chelsea’s fans and owners, who would have thought three months ago that we would be Champions of Europe. He obviously has the backing of the players and it will be interesting how he will be able to mould an evolving Chelsea team
The Blues have officially appointed the Italian on a two-year contract in a fully-deserved move after he turned the club’s fortunes around so dramatically after the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas, and Pep Guardiola initially being groomed as the long-term successor.

At least Di Matteo will be paid for the remaining 1 year contract.

When Di Matteo was appointed as interim manager following the dismissal of Andre Villas-Boas in early March, few observers viewed the former Chelsea midfielder as a viable long-term candidate for the job. In the days that followed Villas-Boas's dismissal, a laundry list of potential managers were name-checked in connection with the vacancy at Stamford Bridge - Pep Guardiola, Rafael Benitez, David Moyes, even former boss Jose Mourinho.
