Interim Chelsea Coach Roberto Di Matteo has given his strongest hint yet that he may be about to accept the Chelsea Managerial role on a full time basis after all. The popular coach, who led Chelsea to an historic FA Cup and Champions League double last month has admitted his love affair with the club, and how he would love to manage Chelsea over a longer period.
Speaking on Chelsea TV he explained, ‘Everyone knows how deep my feelings are for Chelsea. It’s been an honour to even be here so far, and yes, I’d love it to continue. Mr Abramovich could choose any number of candidates but it seems now that I am now in the picture. We have had our little chats, and Mr Abramovich has a running joke about calling me ‘Bod’, after the children’s TV character! I suppose I do look a bit like him. It annoyed me at first but I`ve got used to it now. He’s even bought me a yellow tracksuit for training, the lads think I look great in it!’
Billionaire owner Roman Abramovich has promised Bod he’ll let him know by the end of the month.
