Di Matteo can handle Chelsea heat
Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo admits he is under pressure to deliver results but insists it is the same for every big club in Europe.
Owner Roman Abramovich visited the club's training ground following the Champions League draw with Juventus on Wednesday, with reports suggesting Abramovich was left disappointed by the result.
Di Matteo has confirmed the owner visited Chelsea's Cobham training ground on Thursday but insists nothing should be read into Abramovich's appearance.
"He comes quite often to be honest. He likes to be involved and comes down whenever he can," Di Matteo told the BBC.
"He is the owner and likes to know what is going on and speak to people."
The Blues boss admits he was disappointed to draw with Juventus having taken a two goal lead but expects Chelsea to bounce back when Stoke visit this weekend.
"We weren't happy about the result we got so it wasn't a perfectly happy camp, but will we have to pick ourselves up and win in the Premier League," he added.
There have been reports that Di Matteo could be axed by Abramovich if results, and performances, do not meet expectations.
The Chelsea boss, however, remains relaxed despite the speculation and insists all of the managers of Europe's top clubs are under similar pressure to deliver results.
"At a big club you are always under pressure and have to win games and in the right manner as well," he said. "That is part of being a big club and nothing different with us."
