Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck has admitted Roberto Di Matteo will come "under serious consideration" when the Blues hierarchy sit down to discuss what to do about their vacant managerial position.

Di Matteo only took over on an interim basis following the dismissal of Andre Villas-Boas in February. Although Chelsea missed out on a coveted top-four place, they defeated Liverpool in the FA Cup final earlier this month and on Saturday night enjoyed the greatest night in their history when they beat Bayern Munich on penalties in the Champions League final.

"Robbie has done an amazing job," Buck told Sky Sports News. "He has enabled the players to get back the confidence they used to have. He's really got them performing. Roberto is certainly in the mix, he's done a great job and has to have serious consideration."
