Lampard: Di Matteo has created a spirit and determination at Chelsea

Roberto Di Matteo has been brilliant for Chelsea since taking the reins from Andre Villas-Boas in March.

The Italian has overseen 15 matches with the Blues, winning 10 and drawing 4, including last night's vital Champions League 2-2 draw at Barcelona which put the West London club through to the final.

Since he has come in, Di Matteo has completely changed the environment at Stamford Bridge and his efforts have been lauded by veteran midfielder Frank Lampard.

"I can't speak highly enough of him," Lampard said.

"Look at our record - it's not a coincidence. He has got the group with an atmosphere, he has created a spirit and determination.

"The players were here anyway but what he has done in bringing them together and getting results like that and others from before is amazing."
