Interim Chelsea head coach, Roberto Di Matteo, has admitted he’s only thinking about helping the club finish in the top four – not about getting the manager’s job in a full-time capacity.
The Italian has won his first four games in charge of the Blues, including their 4-1 Champions League victory over Napoli which ensured their passage in the quarter-final stages.
And after their 5-2 FA Cup quarter-final win over Leicester City he has revealed that he’s happy to remain as their temporary boss for the rest of the season as he looks to guide them into the top four.
“I’m quite happy to be interim head coach until the end of the season,” said Di Matteo. “I’m just pleased to get these players to perform at the level they can and that’s all I’m trying to do.
“I don’t want to mull over the past, this is a fresh start for us and I’m look at these four games that we’ve played and now I’m looking forward to the next one we have to play [against Manchester City], which is not a very difficult one, that’s all.
“It’s is crucial for us to finish in fourth spot for next season.”
