Like Grant, Di Matteo took charge of the Blues part-way through a season and led them to the Champions League final.┬áBut while Grant’s men were beaten by Manchester United on penalties in 2008, yesterday Di Matteo’s Chelsea were on the right side of the spot-kick equation as they beat Bayern Munich to become European champions for the first time.

Grant told The Sun on Sunday: “He is the man. Roberto Di Matteo is responsible for the biggest achievement in Chelsea's history. What he has done is unbelievable. He has led the team out of a miserable season to win the Champions League and the FA Cup.”

Di Matteo must now wait to discover if he is given the manager’s job on a permanent basis. “I’m not the guy who makes the decisions at Chelsea but he’s the man,” said Grant.
