Chelsea players want Roberto to take full time charge of the club
Zeenews Sports Bureau
Munich: Roberto Di Matteo would have pinched himself on probably the greatest night of his life as he masterminded Chelsea’s dramatic Champions League glory on Saturday just three months after taking charge of the club.
The Blues have ended the season pocketing two titles—FA Cup defeating Liverpool in the final and the Champions League trophy for the first time defeating Bayern Munich.
The success has been possible only after the Italian took reins of the club as the interim coach after Andre Villas-Boas was sacked.
Post the ecstasy Chelsea players’ have equivocally expressed their desire to give Matteo the full-time charge of the club.
"Look at that trophy. We hope so. Robbie has been fantastic since he came in. It was a superb display from the whole squad. When our backs are against the wall we step up to the mark," John Terry was quoted as saying by a news agency after being asked whether Matteo should be given the job.
Goalkeeper Petr Cech said, "Whatever happens to him (Matteo), he has got two fantastic cups. He has done enough to get the job but that is for the board to decide."
One being asked the question, Roberto himself refused to comment anything preferring to revel in the glory.
"I`m enjoying this moment. I won`t talk about it now," he was quoted as saying.
