Recently there were news that Roman is waiting for Pep .A thing about our owner most people do not know is that he is a huge fan of attacking football. Thus the likes of Mourinho , Grant and Hiddinks were not kept by him. Yes the success matters to him , but every player bought by our board directs to only one thing, flashy and fluid football. Anchelotti could satisfy that in his first season but could not replicate that in the second one. Thus he still searches for the right person to change the football ideology of the club.
Though what Roberto Di Matteo did is incredible especially in just 21 games, his method of doing that was highly criticized by football legends and pundits. Honestly what choice did he have ? With an injured stricken , suspended and comparatively weak squad only way to have won something was to deploy the strategies he used. It is not just defensive football, for me personally i believe a lot of team tried to play defensive football to get success but failed. We played a more disciplined and efficient game, 3 goals out of 4 shots against Barcelona over the two legs. Immensely proud of the team due to that.
Now comes the reason why i believe Roberto Di Matteo should get the job at least for next season. We have seen his strategies with not a good squad, so now after we spend in the summer and try to strengthen the squad why not see how he plays with it ? He gave us our first UEFA Champions League ever, why not we at least try him out for a season, have faith in him ? I do have all my faith in him. He is a Chelsea legend already both as a player and also as a manager.
More over bringing PEP would be almost the same as it was with AVB, i doubt we will get success with Guardiola. He is a good coach undoubtedly but not for Chelsea . Since Hazard signing is complete and Hulk might also sign in 2 weeks , i hope we have our manager ready by the end of this month and my personal believe is Roberto Di Matteo should be the one.
