Grant to Blues: Don't ditch Rob
Former Chelsea manager Avram Grant has said interim boss Roberto di Matteo should be given the job on a full-time basis after overseeing the team's run to the Champions League final.
Di Matteo, himself a former Chelsea midfielder, has presided over an impressive turnaround in Chelsea’s fortunes since replacing the sacked Andre Villas-Boas just over a month ago.
Grant, sacked by owner Roman Abramovich after Chelsea lost the 2008 Champions League final to Manchester United in a Moscow penalty shoot-out — the closest the Blues have come to winning the European Cup — told BBC Radio Five Live: “Roberto deserves one more year, at least, because he has done a good job with this team. To come to the final with this team is unbelievable.”
