Di Matteo rejects Chelsea return talk

Roberto Di Matteo has rejected speculation linking him with the vacant managerial position at Chelsea and insists he has unfinished business with MK Dons.

The former Blues midfielder is ''flattered'' to be linked with the job by the club's fans but admits there is nothing else in the rumours as the London club look for a replacement to take over from Luiz Felipe Scolari, who was sacked on Monday.

A banner was revealed at Stamford Bridge during Saturday's goalless draw against Hull calling for Di Matteo and former team-mate Gianfranco Zola to be placed in charge. But Di Matteo's focus lies firmly with guiding the Dons to promotion from League One.

He told the club's official website: ''It's flattering that the fans still remember you in good terms. I always had a good relationship with the fans, but that's it as far as I am concerned.

''I haven't even thought about it (the Chelsea position). There's a lot that I have to do here, that I want to do here and my ambition is to be successful.''

Chelsea have recently revealed they have approached the Football Union of Russia with regard to appointing Guus Hiddink on a temporary basis until the end of the season while he continues to manage the national team.
