Chelsea skipper John Terry feels winning the FA Cup final against Liverpool will help caretaker boss Roberto Di Matteo land the manager's job full-time.

"It would do him no harm at all," Terry said.

"He's obviously done very well in the league and all competitions to get us where we are today.

"To win it (the cup) will put himself in a very good position.

"He's not thinking of that at the moment, he's not letting the players get distracted by anything.

"He's very passionate, he's Chelsea through and through, and that's certainly rubbed off on the players.

"So, if we can do it with the added bonus that Robbie can get the job at the end, that'd be great."

Di Matteo has transformed Chelsea's season since replacing the sacked Andre Villas-Boas two months ago and is also on the brink of leading them to Champions League glory.

Terry added: "He's done really well and you often see actually when teams are not going so well, a change of management can really help things along, and it's certainly done that since he's come in.

"He's brought Eddie Newton in, who's obviously played for the club as well, so they both represent Chelsea Football Club, which is an added bonus."
