Roberto Di Matteo has vowed not to let his critics get to him as he attempts to prove Roman Abramovich was right to appoint him full-time Chelsea manager.

Despite masterminding the greatest triumph in the Blues' history last season by becoming the first man to lead them to Champions League glory, Di Matteo is among the favourites to be the first Barclays Premier League manager sacked ahead of the start of the season.

"People write and talk and I respect what people want to say and sometimes it makes me smile," he said ahead of Sunday's Premier League opener at Wigan. "I get on with my job. That's the only thing I can influence, try to do my best and prepare my team as well as I can."
