This was the statement on www.chelseafc.com-

Chelsea Football Club is delighted to announcethat Roberto Di Matteo has been appointed manager and first-team coach on apermanent basis.
The Italian returned to Stamford Bridge todayfollowing his holiday to finalise a two-year contract.Chief executive Ron Gourlay says: ‘Roberto’squality was clear for all to see when he galvanised the squad last season andhelped the club make history, and the owner and board are very pleased he willbe continuing his good work.

‘We all believed he was a young coach with much tooffer when we first asked him to take charge of team affairs in March and themanner in which he worked with us, the players and all the staff, and thesuccess that followed, made him the clear choice when it came to selecting theperson to take us forward in the seasons to come.
‘We will be working closely with Roberto in theweeks ahead, some exciting signings have already been made and Roberto has hadinput into those.
‘Although he has set the bar very high in theshort time he has been in charge, we know that Roberto is the right man to leadChelsea onto further success.’



Di Matteo, who turned 42 last month, was interimfirst-team coach for the final 11 weeks of last season, leading the club to anhistoric Champions League and FA Cup double triumph.
He stepped up to the role following the departureof Andre Villas-Boas during the first weekend in March and won the next fourmatches including a tricky FA Cup replay away to Birmingham City and thememorable second-leg turnaround against Napoli.
He said: ‘I’m obviously delighted to have beenappointed as manager and first-team coach. We all achieved incredible successlast season that made history for this great club. Our aim is to continuebuilding on that and I’m already planning and looking forward to the squad’s returnfor pre-season.’

We lost only three matches after he took charge.And although ultimately Chelsea finished outside the top-four places, oursuccess in Europe, that saw Benfica and Barcelona beaten before the victoryagainst Bayern Munich in their home stadium, meant that not only had Di Matteoguided the club to our first Champions League title, but we had also ensuredour place in the competition next season.
The Wembley win over Liverpool in early Maycontinued his already sparkling FA Cup history at Chelsea.





Di Matteo is the fourth Italian to manage Chelsea,continuing his association with the club that began in 1996 when he signed as aplayer from Lazio, the choice of Ruud Gullit.
An international midfielder, he ended his firstseason by scoring in the FA Cup Final as major silverware was brought back toStamford Bridge for the first time in 26 years. He also found the net in aLeague Cup Final win and another FA Cup Final before injury forced hisretirement at the age of 31 having played 175 games and scored 26 goals for theclub.

He returned to Chelsea as assistant first-teamcoach under Villas-Boas at the start of last season having become a manager forthe first time at League One MK Dons in 2008. A year later he moved up adivision to West Bromwich Albion whom he then took into the Premier League atthe first time of asking. He was named the top-flight manager of the month inSeptember 2010 but left The Hawthorns in February 2011.
Gourlay adds: ‘We are already looking forward tothe 2012-13 season which kicks off when Roberto, his staff and players returnfor pre-season.’
