Chelsea sacks interim manager

22 November 2012 #Employment

Chelsea Football Club has controversially dismissed its interim manager, Roberto di Matteo, after he joined in March 2012.  In commenting upon this, the Club thanked Roberto “for all he has done for the club” including his input in the Champions League victory and a seventh FA Cup.  However, it said that the team’s recent performances and results had not been good enough.


Rafa Benitez has been appointed as the interim manager.
