Di Matteo still earning cool £130,000-a-week at Chelsea

Roberto di Matteo remains on the payroll at Chelsea.

The Daily Mail says Di Matteo is still being paid £130,000 a week by Chelsea despite being sacked 12 months ago.

The Italian was unable to reach a settlement with owner Roman Abramovich on his three-year deal when he was fired six months after winning the Champions League as interim boss.

Di Matteo has already banked almost £7million and will continue to pick up the king-sized salary until June 2014, meaning he is reluctant to take on another job for less money.
