Chelsea legend Gullit convinced Abramovich wants rid of Di Matteo

Chelsea legend Ruud Gullit says Blues owner Roman Abramovich will have mixed emotions if they win the Champions League.

He is convinced supremo Abramovich already has a replacement for Roberto di Matteo in place for next season.

He declared: "I think there is somebody already in line.

"But will he still want the job if Chelsea win the Champions League?

"Would even Jose Mourinho want to come in and replace Robbie, knowing he could not top what his predecessor had achieved?

"If Robbie wins the Champions League, it would suddenly put a lot of pressure on the next guy. So maybe the owner doesn't even want to win the final."
