Chelsea Football Club today November 21, 2012 said it has parted company with Manager Roberto Di Matteo.
“The owner and the Board would like to thank
Roberto for all he has done for the club since taking over in March. Roberto helped guide us to an historic Champions League victory and a seventh FA Cup. We will never forget the huge contribution he has made to this club’s history and he will always be welcome at Stamford Bridge,” Chelsea said in a statement.
The English side says the team’s recent
performances and results have not been good
enough and the owner and the Board felt that a change was necessary now to keep the club moving in the right direction as we head into a vitally important part of the season.
Last night, Chelsea lost to Italian side Juventus by 3-0 in the UEFA Champions League. The club says it will be making an announcement shortly regarding a new first team manager.
