Chelsea interim boss Di Matteo concentrating on the present

The caretaker Chelsea manager is focusing on the club’s upcoming fixtures and insists he has not thought about what the future holds for him come the summer

Roberto Di Matteo is keeping his focus on Chelsea’s remaining matches and not his own future at the club.

The Blues enter a crucial run of games which sees them competing in the semi-finals of the FA Cup and Champions League as well as challenging to secure a top-four finish in the Premier League.

The Italian is remaining calm, helped by concentrating on the here and now.

"I am calm because I have no concern about the future," he told Sky Sports.

"I've not spent one second thinking about what will happen in the summer.

Chelsea are 12/1with bet365 to win the Champions League this season.
"I know as a coach you will be judged by your results. I don't have to prove anyone wrong, I am very focused and putting all my energy towards the next game - that's all.

"We have five league games left and these two competitions.”

Di Matteo is keen to ensure all the talk is about the football and the club’s players, with his future having to wait until the season’s end.

"It's about the club, it's about these players. That's what matters the most, not me."
