Roberto Di Matteo admitted he deliberately did not tell his Chelsea players which of them were one booking away from missing the Champions League final ahead of their sensational victory over Barcelona.

The interim boss insisted he had no regrets about hiding the truth from them, despite seeing four of them suspended for next month's Munich showpiece. Branislav Ivanovic, Ramires and Raul Meireles were all booked, while John Terry was sent off.

Di Matteo said: "I decided not to tell them because I wanted them to focus just on the game, and there isn't an issue with any of the players."
