Di Matteo in the dark

Roberto Di Matteo has revealed he remains in the dark about his future, and feels a radical overhaul may be on the horizon at Chelsea if they lose to Bayern Munich in the Champions League final.

Di Matteo has won widespread praise for turning Chelsea's season around since replacing Andre Villa-Boas. He has led the Blues to the Champions League final and masterminded an FA Cup final win, but could only guide them to sixth in the Premier League.

Di Matteo knows sixth is not acceptable for a club of Chelsea's stature and feels changes could be on the horizon.

"If we don't win, I guess we'll need to reassess the situation," Di Matteo said. "After the last game, the people at the club will sit down together and make the right decisions for the future.

"Those decisions involve what changes they want to make to the technical and playing staff. It's not one to discuss now.

"My contract expires at the end of the June and my position has not changed. "I've very much enjoyed my time as manager. It has been very challenging and I will always have a good relationship with the fans.

"I have a legacy at this club that will always be there. No one can take that away. Whenever I come back to Stamford Bridge it will always be a great feeling for me. But I'm not important here. It's all about the club and the players, and the opportunity they have to achieve something very special in Munich next week."

Looking at his own position, Di Matteo said: "I don't know what will happen after the Champions League final. It's too far ahead and there are more important things to think about.

"There's no reason for me to have spoken to anyone yet. When it's the right time to think about these issues, I will do."
