London: Former Chelsea midfielder Roberto Di Matteo has returned to Stamford Bridge as assistant to new coach Andre Villas-Boas, the club said on Wednesday.

Italian Di Matteo was a player with the London club between 1996 and 2002 when injury forced his retirement at the age of 31.

He scored FA Cup final goals in 1997 and 2000, the first of which set a Wembley record for the earliest in a final after just 43 seconds.
Di Matteo was previously manager of Milton Keynes Dons and West Bromwich Albion, the club he left in February.
