Di Matteo always quietly confident over Chelsea job

Roberto di Matteo says he was always confident of landing the job at Chelsea.

The Italian was confirmed as manager, despite speculation linking Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho to the post.

"We have always been in touch and had a few meetings," he said.

"I know the process sometimes takes a bit of time, it is an important decision for the club and I have no problems with it at all.

"I am pretty confident and very happy to be here working with a great squad, who have achieved a lot in the past and have the hunger to achieve even more."
