BEST OPTION WAS ROBERTO

Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has said that the decision made by the club to the interim manager Roberto di Matteo the permanent job is the best possible decision for the club.

Chelsea appointed Roberto di Matteo as the interim manager until the end of the season after the sacking of former FC Porto manager Andre Villas-Boas.

Even though the Italian failed to guide the team into the top four, he achieved the impossible by winning the Champions League for the first time in the history of the club and also an FA Cup trophy as well. However, it was thought that the club were looking at the possibility of bringing in former Barcelona manager Guardiola, with the idea that Lionel Messi might follow…

There was many calls for the appointment of the Italian to be made permanent this season. However, Chelsea only recently confirmed that he would be the next Chelsea manager after going through all the options. Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba, who left the club in the summer after his contract came to an end, has said that he is extremely pleased for Roberto di Matteo. Drogba has one every major trophy possible with Chelsea in his eight years with the club, which he terms as the most special in his career.

“I think we have had so many managers and all of them brought something special to Chelsea” he told Chelsea news. “All of them, I think, were part of our success. When [Jose] Mourinho came, he built up the spirit that we kept all these years. When Carlo Ancelotti came, he also brought another way of playing and thinking. So, it’s difficult to choose one. The most remembered would be Roberto Di Matteo for winning the Champions League. The club was waiting for that,” said Didier Drogba about the appointment of Roberto di Matteo.
