Roberto di Matteo

Football News

One of only two men to hold a Champions League trophy as managers on this list, it is a surprise that one year on from his controversial sacking at Chelsea, Roberto di Matteo is still without a job.

Despite turning the tables and securing an unlikely Champions League victory against all odds, Roman Abramovich felt it was necessary to part ways with the former Chelsea player and manager. It is fair to say the decision did not sit well with the club supporters.

Chances are he'll take charge of a club at sometime in the foreseeable future, with both Tottenham and West Bromwich linked with his services. Whilst far more glamorous names have been linked with the Spurs, Di Matteo has proved his credentials with a UEFA Champions League title under his name against a Bayern side that went on to win the treble the following season with an almost identical squad.

Should Tottenham approach him to offer him a place at the helm, Di Matteo will indubitably leap at the chance to resume his managerial career in England. However, it is more likely that Levy will opt for a manager with a greater history of positive results and a more renowned reputation, such as that of Fabio Capello.

Nonetheless, the jobless Di Matteo should be in the running to assume first team duties at White Hart Lane. He's replaced AVB once with much success, perhaps he can do it again.
