Chelsea chief hails Di Matteo turnaround

Published Add your comment

Chelsea chief executive Ron Gourlay has hailed the "phenomenal turnaround" effected by interim manager Roberto Di Matteo but stopped short of pledging the job to him on a permanent basis.

Di Matteo's transformation of the club since succeeding Andre Villas-Boas was completed on Saturday night when the Blues beat Bayern Munich on penalties to win the Champions League for the first time in their history.

Gourlay told Sky Sports News: "We've seen a phenomenal change and a run of results which finished last night with winning the Champions League. There's a number of things we've got to look at and we'll review where we are and take it from there, but it's a phenomenal turnaround really."
