Bayern boss: Di Matteo should get Chelsea job permanently

Bayern boss: Di Matteo should get Chelsea job permanently Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes is of firm belief that Roberto Di Matteo is the man to guide Chelsea next season even if he does not overcome the Germans in this weekend's Champions League final.

Heynckes' Bayern host the Blues at Allianz Arena tomorrow night and he feels that Di Matteo has done well enough to be given the job permanently by owner Roman Abramovich after initially taking over from Andre Villas-Boas in March.

"We must not forget that he has brought Chelsea all the way to the final with a very calm attitude," Heynckes told reporters.

"It seems he's a very cool person who's very much in control.

"Step by step, he's improved contact with the players and created harmony. That harmony can be felt.

"He's done a marvellous job and I can't see why whether he wins tomorrow or not would have consequences. You need continuity.

"I don't think there's any argument against him continuing.

"He makes an excellent impression on me and, if I was Abramovich, I would continue with this young man."
