Chelsea reportedly continue paying former manager Roberto Di Matteo £130,000 per week, despite sacking him nearly one year ago.

Chelsea are understood to still be paying former manager Roberto Di Matteo £130,000 per week, despite sacking him nearly one year ago.

The 43-year-old Italian was dismissed by Blues owner Roman Abramovich just six months after he guided the team to glory in the Champions League.

However, Di Matteo still pockets an annual salary after failing to agree a settlement with the club, according to the Daily Mail.

The former midfielder will continue to be paid by Chelsea until June 2014, unless he finds a new job before then.

Di Matteo has reportedly earned £7m since being sacked by the West London side.
