Heynckes backs Di Matteo for Chelsea job

Published Add your comment

Bayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes believes Roberto Di Matteo should be given the Chelsea job full-time, regardless of the outcome of Saturday's Champions League final.

Caretaker Blues boss Di Matteo will pit his wits against Heynckes at the Allianz Arena this weekend in what could be his last match in charge and the Italian has admitted he does not think becoming the first manager to lead Chelsea to European Cup glory would make any difference to his hopes of being kept on permanently.

But Heynckes had nothing but praise for the sensational rescue act his opposite number had performed since replacing the sacked Andre Villas-Boas, and said: "We must not forget that he has brought Chelsea all the way to the final with a very calm attitude. It seems he's a very cool person who's very much in control."
