Roberto Di Matteo has insisted he did not feel like a dead man walking ahead of Chelsea's Champions League final against Bayern Munich.
It was claimed this week that caretaker Blues boss Di Matteo was resigned to being snubbed in his bid to land the manager's job full-time, regardless of the outcome of next Saturday's showdown at the Allianz Arena.
Asked if he felt like a "goner", Di Matteo said: "No, no, no. I feel part of this club. I focus on the team and the players, and what we're looking forward to in the next eight days."
