The Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo has been discussing the need for Chelsea to bring in reinforcements this January, and No it’s not because he needs to replace the mis-firing Fernando Torres, but because Victor Moses and Mikel will both be going to the African Cup of Nations!
He said: “We’re looking at making additions in January, because we’ll lose Victor and John Obi Mikel for that tournament,”
“We’ll look and see how we deal with it, but for the moment we’re okay.”
With the intense Chelsea rumours going around that Radamel Falcao will be coming to Stamford Bridge presently, it was little surprise that Di Matteo was asked what his opinion was of the Columbian hitman, and he is obviously an admirer. He said: “If you ask any manager, he would have him in his team,”
“He is one of the best strikers, probably, in European and world football.
“His ratio of goals per game is quite impressive, not just this season but over the last three seasons, at Porto and Atletico Madrid.”
Err and of course not to mention his four goal demolition of Chelsea in the European Super Cup! Of course we want him!
