Di Matteo relives Super Cup triumph
Roberto Di Matteo admits Chelsea's Super Cup clash against Atletico Madrid brings back memories of his greatest triumphs with the club.
Di Matteo will return to the scene of the Blues' famous 1998 Super Cup win over Real Madrid at Monaco's Stade Louis II, where he starred in midfield 14 years ago.
A second crack at the trophy only became possible after the Italian led Chelsea to the first Champions League crown in their history in what was their most recent European outing against Bayern Munich in May.
"The consequence of that night in Munich is this," Blues boss Di Matteo said.
"We shouldn't forget how hard it was to get here - a long road, difficult draws, and we suffered a lot to win it and be able to play this game.
"It's a European trophy. I feel very strongly about it. Hopefully, we can win it again."
