Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata is delighted with the appointment of manager Roberto di Matteo.

Mata believes the club will gain more success under Roberto Di Matteo, who has now been confirmed as manager after a hugely successful spell as interim boss.

He told the Mirror: "I am very happy with Di Matteo continuing. I believed he deserved the opportunity because he took over at a difficult time and yet his success was total.

"To win the FA Cup and Champions League would have been good for any fan. He was responsible for much of that, gave me confidence and more than during Villas-Boas' stay as manager.

"Now I want to try and win the Premier League title next season. Chelsea have shown towards the end of the season the quality as a team and maybe we will suffer less next season."
