Di Matteo met Chelsea senior players 'individually' to remind them of club's targets

   Mar 11, 4:13 pm

London, Mar 11(ANI): Interim Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo has revealed that he personally met the club's seniors players, and reminded them of the targets set for the last two months of this current season.

Di Matteo's move followed the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas, whose worsening relationship with Chelsea's old guard was seen by many as central to his side's catastrophic loss of form.

"It was just a matter of talking to the players individually and realizing that we need to move forward, keep it simple and try to achieve our targets," the Daily Mail quoted Di Matteo, as saying.

Those targets set by the club are an FA Cup win and, more significantly, Champions League qualification.

Di Matteo revealed that he met with senior professionals including Didier Drogba, John Terry, Ashley Cole and Frank Lampard.

"I feel I have everybody onside. They all know what the task is for the next two months of the season," Di Matteo added. (ANI)
