Heynckes backs Di Matteo for Chelsea job
Bayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes says Roberto Di Matteo should get the Chelsea job full-time, regardless of Saturday's match result.
Caretaker Blues boss Di Matteo will pit his wits against Heynckes at the Allianz Arena this weekend in what could be his last match in charge.
The 67-year-old had nothing but praise for the sensational rescue act his opposite number had performed since replacing the sacked Andre Villas-Boas.
Heynckes said: "We must not forget that he has brought Chelsea all the way to the final with a very calm attitude.
"It seems he's a very cool person who's very much in control. Step by step, he's improved contact with the players and created harmony. That harmony can be felt.
"He's done a marvellous job and I can't see why whether he wins or not would have consequences. You need continuity. I don't think there's any argument against him continuing."
