Roberto Di Matteo: How to win the Champions League & other Socio exclusives

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.

But this is only a little piece of the full, 90-minute podcast. The full interview is available to Socios (there are over 600 of them now, and you can join the party by clicking here) and is just one of the podcasts we have been producing for them.
