He led Chelsea to their first ever Champions league title I think he deserves this 'second chance'. Chelsea interim coach, Roberto Di Matteo has finally been appointed as the permanent manager of the club on a two-year deal.

Chief Executive, Chelsea FC, Ron Gourlay believes Di Matteo is the right man to lead the club to further success

"Roberto's quality was clear for all to see when he galvanised the squad last season and helped the club make history, and the owner and board are very pleased he will be continuing his good work.

"We all believed he was a young coach with much to offer when we first asked him to take charge and the manner in which he worked with us, the players and all the staff, and the success that followed, made him the clear choice when it came to selecting the person to take us forward in the seasons to come." He added.

The 42year-old Italian who came in after erstwhile coach Andre Villas Boas was sacked in March also helped the club win FA cup.

"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 looking forward to the squad's return for pre-season." He enthused.

Watch it Matteo, I pray you don't get smacked by Abrahamovich.
