Former Chelsea striker Tore Andre Flo believes Roberto Di Matteo would become the Blues’ new manager on a full-time basis if owner Roman Abramovich was to offer the position to the current interim boss, the BBC has reported.

Flo played with Di Matteo at Chelsea for three years between 1997 and 2000, as well as played under the Italian at MK Dons, Di Matteo’s first managerial role. Since replacing Andre Villas-Boas in March Di Matteo has taken Chelsea to the Champions League semi-finals, where Chelsea will meet Barcelona, as well as the same stage of the FA Cup and a match with Tottenham Hotspur.

Di Matteo has won seven of his nine matches in charge and Flo told the BBC: “I think he would take the job. I think also that a lot of people would like him to do that. It would be very welcome among the fans.

Flo, who also played for Rangers in Scotland and Sunderland and Leeds United in England, made 163 appearances for Chelsea, scoring 50 goals in the process. Now 38, Flo currently plays for Sogndal in the top flight of his native Norway.
