Roberto Di Matteo wants to win move honours with the Blues
Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo is looking to add to his ever growing medal collection.
Under the Italian’s leadership, the Blues lifted the FA Cup and then finished the season as Champions League winners and could add another with a win in the Community Shield against Manchester City on Sunday.
“There’s plenty of trophies to win this season,” Di Matteo said ahead of the clash against Barclays Premier League champions Manchester City.
“We have a very driven team of players and they are never satisfied with what they’ve done in the past.
“It’s a fresh start for us. It won’t be a problem from that point of view.
“There are a couple of trophies our players have never won, and challenging for the Premier League, too.
“We finished sixth last season and I don’t think anybody is happy with that. We certainly have to do better.”
Chelsea were a distant 25 points behind City and Manchester United in the final standings and Roman Abramovich’s summer spending spree has indicated that this must not happen again.
“There was a big gap last season, and that is one of our challenges this season, to bridge that gap,” Di Matteo said.
“Twenty-five points are a lot of points.
“It’ll be a tough season ahead but we’ll try and compete.”
