Di Matteo decision on hold
Roberto Di Matteo will have to wait until the end of the season to find out if he will get the Chelsea job on a permanent basis.
Di Matteo has turned things around at Stamford Bridge since replacing Andre Villas-Boas and after guiding the club to the Champions League Final he has boosted his chances of getting the job on a permanent basis. There are still suggestions that Roman Abramovich will look elsewhere and still wants to bring back Jose Mourinho, whose Real Madrid side lost to Bayern Munich last night, but whatever the decision it will be left until the end of the season. Di Matteo has lost just one game in the matches since he took charge, and that was against Manchester City, but chief executive Ron Gourlay has ruled out an early decision. "We are going to wait until the end of the season," Gourlay told the Daily Express. "Robbie has done a fantastic job but we will stick to our view. I don't want to add any pressure on anybody at the club. There is enough pressure on us as it is. "We said we'd review things at the end of the season and that's the position we're still in. We'll see how the next few games go and then we'll sit down as we agreed."
