Di Matteo trusted to plan Chelsea future

Published Add your comment

Roberto Di Matteo is aiming to build on winning the FA Cup and Champions League next season after he was named Chelsea's permanent manager and first-team coach.

Di Matteo, 42, was promoted from assistant manager into temporary charge of the Blues in March following a poor spell under then-boss Andre Villas-Boas. He then led Chelsea to their fourth FA Cup success in six seasons before masterminding their maiden Champions League title with victory over Bayern Munich on penalties.

The former Italy midfielder, who also enjoyed a distinguished playing career at Stamford Bridge, has now been given the job full-time after signing a two-year deal and is looking to build on those successes. He said: "I'm obviously delighted to have been appointed as manager and first-team coach."
