Lazio legend Zoff urges Di Matteo to return to Italy

Lazio legend Dino Zoff has urged sacked Chelsea manager Roberto di Matteo to move to Italy. Di Matteo was axed yesterday following Chelsea's Champions League thrashing by Juventus.

"It's a shame," Zoff, who bossed Di Matteo during their time together at Lazio, told TMW on Wednesday.

"He's a man and a Coach who knows what is going on. Getting sacked happens, but he is an exemplary professional and he'll know how to pick himself back up.

"Di Matteo is ready for anything. It may have ended badly at Chelsea, but facing this Juventus side is not easy."
