Di Matteo Returning Soon!

In recent weeks, as the bitching continues about the removal from office of Roberto Di Matteo, one question seems to be more prevalent than others.

Several punters have queried why, if Roberto is such a good manager then why hasn`t he found another job yet?

It is a god question!

My theory is that Roberto, on the back of what happened is in no rush to return to management and is taking something akin to a break to recharge his batteries and spend some of that pay-off he probably received.

However, if on Sunday newspaper, the Sunday Express, is correct, then Roberto could soon be a familiar face on the touchline, this time at Schalke, next season.

Hopefully, the rumours are true because football needs nice guys like Roberto does it not?

Let's hope he doesn't stab any other manager(AVB) in the back and take their job.

Some comments are just laughable........ Shalke is a good club with some nice players, if rdm gets the job I hope he is given the backing he needs to suceed there, I would place a bet on him winning over there..

@ He didn't get any payoff just like AVB , he his still on our payroll till he gets a new job. That could explain why he is no rush to get a new job because his salary with us might not be easily match. I wish him good luck.

There are certain clauses in contracts that we have no definite idea about. Under the terms of a three-year deal Ancelotti penned in 2009,he was not allowed to work for another Premier League club within 12 months of leaving Stamford Bridge. He spent 8 months out of a job after his sack in May. He wanted to coach a premier League club but the clause in his contract meant,it would be a bridge of contract and a £6m loss. So he went for a ligue 1 side in Dec. Of all our managers sacked,Robbie seems to be the only manager on the lowest pay off; CLAUDIO RANIERI £2M JOSÉ MOURINHO £20M AVRAM GRANT £3M LUIZ FELIPE SCOLARI £12.6M CARLO ANCELOTTI £6M ANDRÉ VILLAS-BOAS £13.3M ROBERTO DI MATTEO £2.5M Even so, how many of our managers sacked during the season got a job almost immediately. Jose had to wait till the summer,Scolari waited till june to sign for a club in Uzbekistan,AVB waited till the summer to take charge of Spurs. So there's obviously no rush at all for Robbie.

I suspect DiMatteo is still on Chelsea's payroll. The strategy is that if he joins another club, that club will have to compensate Chelsea for the remainder of his contract just like in Villas Boas' case.

RDM will take his time on this decision. He took the permanent position with us using his heart rather than his head and i can understand that knowing his love for Chelsea but i think he has learnt his lesson. No point taking a Job where the owner appoints you only as a last resort rather than because he actually wants you, trusts you and is willing to give you the time and resources to have a decent chance to succeed. All the best RDM, i wish you well and as Uncle Merl says i really like to see nice guys like you and Carlo win.
