Roberto Di Matteo has spoken of his pride at being Chelsea manager just hours after he was sacked by the Barclays Premier League club.

Di Matteo lost his job in the wake of Tuesday night's 3-0 Champions League defeat to Juventus in Turin. The Italian was replaced by former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez who has been appointed as interim first-team manager until the end of the season.

Di Matteo spent eight months in charge at Stamford Bridge winning both the FA Cup and for the first time in the club's history, the Champions League. "It was an honour for me to be appointed manager of a club that I loved playing for and one that is so close to my heart," he said in a statement issued by the League Managers Association.
