Zola backs Di Matteo for Blues post

Published Add your comment

Former Chelsea striker Gianfranco Zola believes Italian compatriot Roberto Di Matteo is likely to remain in charge of the Blues next season.

Di Matteo took over from sacked manager Andre Villas-Boas in March and guided the London outfit to their maiden Champions League title, along with the club's seventh FA Cup triumph.

Zola, who has been linked in recent months with the managerial job at Stamford Bridge, expects Di Matteo to be appointed as the club's permanent manager. He told Italian radio station Radio Mana Mana Sport: "Right now it's premature to judge what will happen on the Blues' bench or what will be my future."
