Chelsea, has once again shown their impatience with managers, after they sacked Roberto Di Matteo this morning. The Italian has been shown the door at Stamford Bridge, just six months after landing the elusive Champions League trophy, as well as the FA Cup. Chelsea’s official Twittter account broke the news, even before a statement appeared on their website. “Chelsea Football Club has parted company this morning with Manager Roberto Di Matteo,” the statement read.
Just last night, the London side were soundly beaten in Turin by Juventus, three days after losing 2-1 to Di Matteo’s former side, West Brom.
