Leeds manager Neil Warnock believes Roberto Di Matteo should be "absolutely delighted" to have achieved the success he had at Stamford Bridge because the Italian was only "part-time anyhow".

Di Matteo was sacked by the Blues just six months after winning the FA Cup, and for the first time in the club's history, the Champions League. Rafael Benitez has been brought in until the end of the season as interim first team manager with the Blues expected to make a move for former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola, who is taking a year sabbatical, in the summer.

"I think I would be absolutely delighted if I were him, because he was never going to be the manager," Warnock told reporters. "He's taken the job on and won the Champions League and the FA Cup, which nobody can take away from him."
