Ex-Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo proud of his achievements- and rightly so

The latest victim of Roman Abramovich’s reign, Roberto Di Matteo, has spoken about his time in charge of the West-London club.

The Italian manager who was sacked on Wednesday morning, following the 3-0 loss to Juventus in Turin, had only recently been heralded as a Chelsea legend after bringing the elusive Champions League champions trophy to Stamford Bridge, as well as winning the FA Cup, all within his first season in charge.

The Ex-Chelsea midfielder said: “I am extremely proud of the successes and trophies that we were able to bring to the club,

“I have a deep and unreserved passion for Chelsea Football Club.

“It was an honour for me to be appointed manager of a club that I loved playing for and one that is so close to my heart,” he added.

“Lifting Chelsea’s first Champions League trophy, in Munich, was the best achievement in the club’s history and without doubt the highlight of my career to date, both as a player and manager. It is a memory I will treasure for the rest of my life.

“I would like to sincerely thank all of the staff, my players and of course the Chelsea fans, for their tremendous and unconditioned
support in the intense time I have been the manager at the Bridge.

“I wish all of them every success for the rest of the season and beyond.”

Robbie, you did us all proud and will never be forgotten, one bad month and out of the job, its almost like you’ve been blamed for the injuries and bans to our experienced players which ultimately cost you your job. C’est la vie. Thank you, you Chelsea legend.

    RDM: you did so much in so little time. Your signature is out bt your name would remain as the first ever Manager to bring Europe’s most coveted silverware to the bridge & if we fail to qualify for the CL round-of-16, Roman would be responsible & not you.

    With love from Africa.
