Chelsea Transfer News: 5 Reasons Roberto Di Matteo Should Not Be the Head Coach

Chelsea fans are riding at an all-time high right now.

Just three weeks removed from the biggest win in the club's history, they are now likely to make their first signing of the summer-transfer window.

And it happens to be the biggest name available: Eden Hazard.

But the bright lights of success can sometimes blind the delegate into missing some pretty basic issues—one being that the team is currently without a coach. While the club is still searching the globe for the man who will take the lead in sustaining this new-found glory, most observers are assuming it will be the same manager who took them there in the first place—Roberto Di Matteo.

It was not more than a few weeks ago that owner Roman Abramovich looked to defy the wishes of fans and reel in another big name coach the club. But the combination of Champions League success and public pressure has him rumored to be leaning toward naming Di Matteo the full-time manager.

But is this really the best move for him and the club?

This article intends to present a few reasons why he may not be. Now, if you are at all familiar with my work you know that I would like nothing more than for Di Matteo to be given the post he earned. I am trying to play devil’s advocate here, debating with myself and you readers as to whether there is a better option out there.

So before you bash me for being a flip-flopping dunce, give these five reasons a quick read over and let me know whether or not I am grabbing at loose strings.
