Di Matteo blasts media: Some of you say Chelsea are worst team in the country!

Chelsea boss Roberto di Matteo has launched a broadside at their critics.

Di Matteo has managed to bite his tongue over criticism of his side but when it was pointed out that Manchester United had been praised this season for their handling of veteran stars Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes, the Italian could not help himself.

"Thank you very much. Thank you very much," he said.

"What can I say? From where I'm sitting, we are one point now behind Tottenham, in the final of the FA Cup and semi-final of the Champions League, and we seem to be the worst team in England, you know?

"That's what it feels like sometimes."

Asked if he had used that to motivate his players, he said: "I'm not going to tell you what I use!

"I'm not saying it's unfair. We respect everybody's opinion."
