Roberto Di Matteo: How to Win the Champions League

Hello Big Interview listeners! And a Happy New Year! We’ve picked out a juicy chunk of my Big Interview with Roberto Di Matteo. In this extract, Robbie talks about taking over Chelsea in March 2012 after the sacking of Andre Villas Boas. Robbie describes the mixture of personalities as the most difficult dressing room he ever faced as a player or manager.

But it held the key to unbelievable success. Here, he talks through the incredible second leg of their last 16 tie and a nerve-shredding quarter-final win over Benfica.
