ROBERTO Di Matteo insists he is not content with Champions League and FA Cup glory after being appointed as Chelsea manager.
The 42-year-old was today named as boss on a two-year contract after breathing new life into the club following the disastrous reign of Andre Villas-Boas.
But despite delivering the club’s first ever European Cup and beating Liverpool to the FA Cup, the Italian is not resting on his laurels.
He said: “I'm obviously delighted to have been appointed as manager and first-team coach. We all achieved incredible success last season that made history for this great club. Our aim is to continue building on that and I'm already planning and looking forward to the squad's return for pre-season.”
Di Matteo is the fourth Italian to manage Chelsea, continuing his association with the club that began in 1996 when he signed as a player from Lazio.
He will be expected to challenge for the Premier League next term and the Blues’ acquisition of Belgian superstar Eden Hazard has sent out a warning to holders Manchester City.
