Poyet backs Di Matteo for Chelsea job

Published Add your comment

Gus Poyet has urged Roman Abramovich to hand Roberto Di Matteo the Chelsea job full time, dubbing the decision a complete no-brainer.

Caretaker Blues boss Di Matteo remained in the dark about his future after playing in the British Airways Football Legends Invitational Tournament in Barbados. The event allowed him to catch up with former team-mates Poyet, Gianfranco Zola and Dennis Wise but in the background was continued speculation over his Chelsea status.

Di Matteo declined the opportunity to discuss the saga but Poyet provided an insight into how the Italian - who turns 42 on Tuesday - was feeling. He said: "He's very relaxed. He's just trying to get away from the crazy three months that he had." "It would be common sense that he will stay," Poyet added.
