Chelsea Sack Di Matteo : Another Manager Fired

An anti climax? Definitely. Chelseafc website has just revealed that the club has parted company this morning with Manager Roberto Di Matteo.

The statement read “The team’s recent performances and results have not been good enough and the owner and the Board felt that a change was necessary now to keep the club moving in the right direction as we head into a vitally important part of the season.”


“The owner and the Board would like to thank Roberto for all he has done for the club since taking over in March. Roberto helped guide us to an historic Champions League victory and a seventh FA Cup. We will never forget the huge contribution he has made to this club’s history and he will always be welcome at Stamford Bridge.

The club will be making an announcement shortly regarding a new first team manager.”


Reaction : 

WOW.. that was quick. Di Matteo was and will always be a legend at the Bridge. He was a fan favorite as a player and they worshiped him as a manager. He was the fastest manager in history to win the champions league with just 3 months in charge and also the first manager to win it with Chelsea. Yet a few bad results sees him depart. Whether it was the right decision or not, only time will tell. Many have criticized Roman’s decisions to keep sacking the manager but that has really paid off well to the club. With big names like Pep Guordiola and Rafa Benitez a few names linked with the club, we could see another revolution here at Chelsea.
