We like a little flutter (Grand National mainly and a few football accys) here at Sport-locker.net – and today we’re gutted we didn’t put some money on a certain bet!
Because we’ve just found out that interactive betting company Blue Square is throwing its support behind Roberto Di Matteo by paying out on him becoming the next Chelsea manager.
As speculation continues ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup Final showdown with Liverpool, Blue Square is rewarding punters who have shown faith in Di Matteo keeping the Stamford Bridge hotseat.
Last week’s resignation of Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola led to increased speculation that the Spaniard was being lined up for the Chelsea job and that Di Matteo was for the exit, but what has he done wrong?
Blue Square spokesperson Alan Alger said: “To be honest if you look at what he’s achieved in the short time he’s been Chelsea caretaker boss it’s utter nonsense that other candidates are even being considered.
“Irrespective of what happens in the FA Cup Final, we think Di Matteo is the man and we’re happy to pay out on him now.”
