Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola has called for his old team-mate Roberto Di Matteo to be given a chance to impress at Stamford Bridge before the Blues consider other potentials to succeed Andre Villas-Boas. The former West Ham manager told Sky Sports that Di Matteo “has the qualities to do a good job” at Stamford Bridge. Zola was reluctant to promote himself as a candidate to fill the vacant manager’s position at Chelsea, suggesting that Di Matteo could well go on to become the next permanent Blues boss.
While Zola was giving his views on the Chelsea job, it was interesting to see a familiar face lurking in the background. Who is that man? He probably wouldn’t mind walking into a well paid, high profile job, given bucket loads to spend despite possessing a vastly inadequate and underwhelming managerial record. Chelsea fans needn’t worry too much though – it’s difficult to find a bookie who will even give you odds for Alan Shearer!
