Roberto Di Matteo ‘Still Being Paid £130,000 Per Week By Chelsea’: Nightly Soccer Report

roberto di matteo Roberto Di Matteo ‘Still Being Paid £130,000 Per Week By Chelsea’: Nightly Soccer Report

Roberto Di Matteo is still being paid £130,000 per week by Chelsea, one year after being sacked by Roman Abramovich.

The astonishing revelation was brought to light by The Daily Mail‘s reporter Neil Ashton. He wrote:

“The Italian was unable to reach a settlement with owner Roman Abramovich on his three-year deal when he was fired six months after winning the Champions League as interim boss.

“Di Matteo has already banked almost £7million and will continue to pick up the king-sized salary until June 2014, meaning he is reluctant to take on another job for less money.”

Does Di Matteo have the best job in the world? You decide!

    This made me laugh so hard! Nice work if you can get it, I guess.

    The best job belongs to Minnesota Vikings QB Josh Freeman.

    I don’t see the big deal. He’s getting paid to sit on his ar$e. No different from what he was doing while he was at Chelsea.
