Juventus caretaker coach Angelo Alessio has paid tribute to Chelsea manager Roberto di Matteo.

Alessio will be on the touchline for Juve against the Blues in their Champions League clash.

He said of Di Matteo: "He did something extraordinary last season and he is showing it again this year.

"We're pleased when an Italian coach does so well in England. We are pleased with what he has done and what he is doing.

"I don't think he is actually going to lose his job if they don't qualify."
