Former Blue Re-Joins Chelsea In Surprise Move

By on June 29, 2011

Former West Brom boss Roberto Di Matteo is returning to Stamford Bridge as an assistant manager under Andre Villa-Boas.

The former Azzurri international is a two-time FA Cup champion with the Blues and was regarded as one of the bright young managers in European football before he was sacked by West Brom last February. The appointment of Di Matteo is a surprise to many football experts in England, but is a reasonable one.

With this move, Villa-Boas is making a strong impression on Chelsea supporters. Reinstalling tradition is an important part of building a dynasty, just look at what Sir Alex Ferguson brought to Manchester United. Villa-Boas has done everything correctly off the pitch, come August, he will have to keep up the momentum and get results or he might be the next manager sacked by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich.
