Di Matteo: No animosity towards Baggies

Roberto Di Matteo has admitted his sacking by West Brom may have been a blessing in disguise as he prepares for his first return to the Hawthorns as Chelsea boss.

Di Matteo insisted he bore no grudges over his controversial dismissal in February 2011, which has ended up working out spectacularly well both for the Baggies and him personally.

He said: "Look at where I'm sitting now, so I'm not so sure it was a bad thing," said Di Matteo ahead of Saturday's Barclays Premier League game between the sides. "That's football. That's life. In a manager's career, you're going to get the sack at some point if you have a long career."
