Roberto Di Matteo will have to wait until the end of the season to discover whether he has a long-term future as Chelsea manager.

The Blues' form has picked up remarkably since Di Matteo replaced Andre Villas-Boas on an interim basis - culminating on Tuesday night when they completed a 3-2 aggregate win over Barcelona to reach the Champions League final. His 15 games in charge have brought 10 wins, four draws and only one defeat.

But chief executive Ron Gourlay has ruled out an early appointment as club owner Roman Abramovich and technical director Michael Emenalo continue to consider their options. "We are going to wait until the end of the season," Gourlay told the Daily Express. "Robbie has done a fantastic job but we will stick to our view."
