League Managers Association chief Richard Bevan paid tribute to Roberto di Matteo after his dismissal by Chelsea.
Bevan says Di Matteo can be proud of his work.
"The LMA shares Roberto's disappointment following Chelsea's decision to relieve him of his managerial duties," he said.
"What cannot be questioned is Roberto's passion for the club and the honesty and integrity he has shown throughout his time in charge.
"His record of a Champions League title and FA Cup triumph, speaks for itself, and he can be incredibly proud of what he has achieved in such a short space of time."
"I know he is extremely appreciative of receiving so much support and solidarity, and it demonstrates the high regard and respect that those in the game have for Roberto."
