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!
