Chelsea boss Roberto di Matteo is losing his rag over the scandal engulfing his squad.

Yesterday, Di Matteo had spent 20 minutes straight-batting questions about John Terry when Ashley Cole chose to give his own verdict on the FA's disciplinary findings.

By the end of his media grilling he looked like a man in need of a long rest.

At one point he said: "We spend three-quarters of our Press conferences talking about other stuff. Is anybody interested in Chelsea v Norwich?

"We'll look at the tweet and see. Apart from this, I don't think so, but I need to see the reasoning behind it."
