Di Matteo hits back at Chelsea critics

Chelsea interim manager Roberto Di Matteo has hit back at critics of the Premier League side, accusing them of exaggerating the struggle faced by the Stamford Bridge club, Sporting Life has reported.



Speaking after Chelsea drew 0-0 with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, Di Matteo thanked a reporter who drew parallels between Manchester United’s reliance on Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes, 38 and 37 respectively, and Chelsea’s own senior players, who, the article notes, have been written off because of their age.


Di Matteo said: “Thank you very much…what can I say? From where I’m sitting, we are one point behind Tottenham, in the final of the FA Cup and the semi-final of the Champions League, and we seem to be the worst team in England…that’s what it feels like sometimes.


The goalless draw with the Gunners left Chelsea in sixth place, a point behind Spurs, the same opposition the Blues dispatched 5-1 in the FA Cup semi-final. Chelsea are also four points adrift of Newcastle United, who occupy the final Champions League qualification place, and seven away from Arsenal, who, if they finish third, will avoid a play-off and instead enter the Champions League group stages directly.
