Roman Abramovich list of managers is a who's who of football and he has spent about £60m to hire and fire them.
The rotating door included José Mourinho a Champions League winner with Porto and Milan, Luiz Scolari a World Cup winner with Brazil and Guus Hiddink a European Cup winner with PSV Eindhoven. Carlo Ancelotti had twice won the Champions League with Milan, while André Villas-Boas CV in Portugal is as good as any.
Enter through the door Roberto Di Matteo and while Villas-Boas failed in the Premier League trying to change the squad at too quicker pace that looked at the future rather than the present, he has galvanised the experienced players who can go one better than Avram Grant did missing out on a penalty shoot out in the final of the Champions League against Manchester United.
Only in this surreal world of Abramovich could a caretaker manager be given the chance to deliver the Holy Grail for the Chelsea owner in Munich to add to the array of trophies that have been brought to the club by the legacy that has proceeded.
