Roberto Di Matteo has finally been hired as Chelsea manager on a two year contract. He had previously been serving on a caretaker role after Andre Villas Boas was fired. In his short stint at Stamford Bridge, Di Matteo brought Chelsea two cups among them their most valued, the UEFA Champions league.
"We will be working closely with Roberto in the weeks ahead, some exciting signings have already been made and Roberto has had input into those. Although he has set the bar very high in the short time he has been in charge, we know that Roberto is the right man to lead Chelsea onto further success."
"I'm obviously delighted to have been appointed as manager and first team coach," he said. "We all achieved incredible success last season that made history for this great club. Our aim is to continue building on that and I'm already planning and looking forward to the squad's return for preseason."
