Great news for Roberto Di Matteo and for Chelsea football club in general I feel with the news that Roberto Di Matteo has been announced as the full time boss of the West London football club following their FA Cup and Champions League final success.

It had looked as if Di Matteo was going to be shunned the chance to take on the Chelsea job on a permanent basis due to the lengthy spell after winning the coveted European trophy, for the first time in the clubs history, with no positive announcement regarding Di Matteo and constant rumours of other top class managers who'd seemingly been approached about the job.

Andrei Arshavin is a very talented footballer. There's no question about that. Even his critics would have to admit the Russian captain has the skills needed to succeed at the top level of the sport. However, as often happens in the world of sports, he may need a change of scenery, since he doesn't seem to be able to put it all together when playing for Arsenal.
