Di Matteo disappointed at lack of Chelsea recognition for Ballon d'Or

Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo admits he is disappointed by FIFA's lack of Ballon d'Or recognition for players from his club.

Only former Blue Didier Drogba was selected in the 23-man shortlist for the individual award and the Italian manager feels that is not enough considering his side won the Champions League.

"That is a bit disappointing because as the winners of the Champions League you would have expected it to recognise the performances of our players," he told the club's official website.

"It is a hard one to explain, I'm not sure if they look a lot at the international games as well."
