Di Matteo: Final won't decide my future

Published Add your comment

Roberto Di Matteo insists he will have "no problem" if winning the Champions League fails to convince Chelsea to give him the manager's job full-time.

Caretaker boss Di Matteo gave his clearest hint yet that he does not expect owner Roman Abramovich to keep him on beyond the end of the season following Saturday's Barclays Premier League win over Blackburn. The 2-1 victory at Stamford Bridge could be Di Matteo's final home game at the helm and he gave little away in his post-match lap of honour

His post-match press conference, however, was a different matter. Asked if he thought the outcome of Saturday's Champions League final would determine whether he was at the club next season, Di Matteo said: "I don't think so, no, but I have no problem with it."
