While many football fans were enjoying the Denmark versus Portugal match at Euro 2012, Chelsea were busy naming their new manager.

The official Chelsea website reports that Roberto di Matteo will be staying with the club after leading them to two titles last season.

Di Matteo took over as interim manager after Andre Villas-Boas was fired by the club in March.

The former Italian international led the Blues to not only the FA Cup title, but to the elusive UEFA Champions League title that avoided Chelsea even under Jose Mourinho.

Chelsea will be the third club that the 42-year-old will have managed.

Di Matteo previously managed Milton Keynes Dons and West Bromwich Albion before joining the Chelsea staff under Villas-Boas last June.
