Di Matteo would consider fighting bans

Published Add your comment

Chelsea would be willing to join forces with Bayern Munich to try to overturn the yellow-card bans that will see six players miss the Champions League final, according to Roberto Di Matteo.

But caretaker Blues boss Di Matteo admitted it would be "very difficult" to convince UEFA to change their rules ahead of next month's Allianz Arena showpiece.

Asked if Chelsea would consider a joint bid with Bayern to get European football's governing body to change their minds, Di Matteo said: "If there's any possibility, we would consider it, of course. But I think it would prove very difficult."
