Chelsea keeper Cech hopes Di Matteo now given permanent job

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech would like to see Roberto di Matteo given the full-time manager's job after victory in the Champions League.

Cech believes Di Matteo has staked a strong claim to be manager on a permanent basis.

Cech said on ITV1: "Whatever happens to him he's got two fantastic cups and he's deserved that.

"I think he's done enough to get the job but now it's up to the board to decide."

Looking back to Chelsea's last Champions League final four years ago, Cech said: "When we lost the penalty shoot-out against Manchester United in Moscow maybe it was not meant to be our moment.

"But as a player you hope you will have the same opportunity to play the final.

"It was a rollercoaster road, we all enjoyed it, and we got there in the end.

"I faced six penalties and six times I went the right way, four times I touched the ball."
