Blues quiet over Di Matteo future

Chelsea chief executive Ron Gourlay praised Roberto Di Matteo's efforts after he led the team to FA Cup glory but remains insistent that no decision will be taken on his long-term future until the end of the season.

Di Matteo has overseen a remarkable turnaround in fortunes since the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas in March, leading the team to a 2-1 victory over Liverpool at Wembley on Saturday and to a Champions League final against Bayern Munich later this month.

"He's done very well since we brought him in as the interim manager and I think the players have responded particularly well as well, so there's been a good team effort," Gourlay said. "When you look back and where we've got to, I think we've come a long way."

However, Gourlay has already said that an announcement on the club's next permanent manager will not be made until the summer and, while captain John Terry has called for Di Matteo to be given the job, the Blues will not change course.

"I'm not going to change my mind on what I've said," he said. "We've just got to take the cliched one game at a time. That's honestly the way that we've treated things.

"We've got three games left - we'll see how we finish. Hopefully we can take this forward now to Munich and make us all proud and then we'll take things from there."

Didier Drogba has been a key figure in the Chelsea renaissance, but it is still unclear whether the striker will be at Stamford Bridge next season.

It had been thought that Drogba would join former Blues team-mate Nicolas Anelka at Shanghai Shenhua yet talks are ongoing and Gourlay has suggested the club are keen to retain him.

"We're always talking to Didier," he said. "Didier loves Chelsea and we love Didier and we'll continue to have the conversations and we'll see where that goes."

Drogba, 34, has been keen to secure a two-year deal, but Gourlay was unwilling to say whether Chelsea were prepared to meet his request. "I don't want to go into contractual things," he said. "It's not right for me to do that."
