Di Matteo not considering Chelsea future

Roberto Di Matteo is not planning past the end of the season, as the BBC reports that the interim Chelsea manager will consider his long-term options when the time is right.

Di Matteo was appointed to replace Andre Villas-Boas on a temporary basis when the Portuguese was relieved of his duties at the end of March. Formerly Villas-Boas’ assistant, Di Matteo has gone on to win 10 of his 13 matches in charge, guiding Chelsea into the FA Cup final and engineering a first-leg advantage over Barcelona in the semi-finals of the Champions League. Under the former Italy midfielder, Chelsea are also back in contention to finish fourth in the Premier League.

But the 41-year-old rejected the suggestion that the uncertainty over who would be Chelsea’s next permanent manager was playing on his mind. Di Matteo said: “There’s time and space for everything. When the right time comes to sit down and think about it, I will. At the moment I’m not thinking about anything like that. It’s business.

Di Matteo spent six years as a Chelsea player, arriving at Stamford Bridge from Lazio in 1996 and remaining until injuries forced an early retirement in 2002, at the age of 31. After ending his playing career Di Matteo managed MK Dons and West Bromwich Albion before returning to the Blues.
