Di Matteo to review role next year


Roberto Di Matteo insists he has no problems operating as Andre-Villas Boas' assistant, but admits he will review his position with Chelsea at the end of the season.

Di Matteo joined the Chelsea backroom staff this summer following the appointment of Villas-Boas. The 41-year-old, who played at Chelsea for six years, was last weekend forced to deny rumours he wanted to leave Stamford Bridge to return to management after being linked with the hot seat at Portsmouth.

The former Italy midfielder, whose contract at Stamford Bridge runs out next summer, said on Monday: "I'm very happy to be here. It's my club. I feel at home and Andre and I have developed a very good working relationship, so it's something we'll discuss maybe at the end of the season."
