Former Blues boss Gullit, who took Di Matteo to Stamford Bridge in 1996, moaned after Torres’ miserable display against Juventus on Wednesday that it might “not be a bad thing” if he were to pick up an injury because “at the moment they are playing with 10 men”.
Gullit added: “I am getting impatient with him. He is not involved. He is not in the places he has to be. It’s not enough. For a player of this standard, I want more from him.
“He is not involved in the game at all. I am just trying to figure out what is wrong with this lad.”
But Di Matteo rapped: “We’re happy with him.
“Even when he doesn’t score he provides and works hard for the team and he’s always an outlet for us.
“At the moment there is no issue for us. Changing the system is not in discussion at the moment. We have a forward and we’re happy with him.
“Hopefully Daniel Sturridge will be fit and back soon as well. At the moment our system is playing with one forward.”
