Di Matteo prepared for possibility of Chelsea exit

Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo has admitted that he is prepared for the possibility theat he may not be in the job at the start of next season, despite a largely successful period since replacing Andre Villas-Boas in March.

Talking ahead of Chelsea’s final Premier League match of the season against Blackburn at Stamford Bridge, Di Matteo insisted that he has the option of managing abroad, however he would prefer to stay in England:

"Fortunately, I speak three languages, so I'm quite open-minded”, he told PA. But I've been in England for a long, long time. My family is here with me. We quite like it here in England."

Di Matteo was born in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, a German speaking town, to Italian parents, and has lived in England since his move from Lazio to Chelsea 16 years ago. Therefore should Blues owner Roman Abramovich not make his interim manager permanent at the end of the season, the Premier League, Serie A and Bundesliga will all become serious options.

Di Matteo also spoke of the Champions League final against Bayern Munich in a weeks time, a game that will determine whether Stamford Bridge will see Champions League football next season.

"They show they're hungry in training and in the games they've been involved in, over many years. We're talking about very successful players here. And they'll show it again."
