Gary Cahill reveals that the Chelsea players are fully behind manager Roberto Di Matteo amid the rumours over the Italian's Stamford Bridge future.

Gary Cahill has insisted that the players are firmly behind Roberto Di Matteo amid rumours suggesting that the Italian is facing the Chelsea sack.

The Italian's Stamford Bridge future has been brought into question, with owner Roman Abramovich reportedly keen to bring in Pep Guardiola at the end of the season.

However, Cahill has rubbished the speculation and backed his manager to prove himself worthy of the post as he did during his caretaker spell in charge last season.

"From last year, when he took the job, he did tremendously well and achieved such a lot in a short space of time.

"We started the campaign really well. We're all behind him and he's definitely the right man. He proved it last year and I'm sure he will prove it this year as well."

The Blues face a Champions League trip to Juventus on Tuesday with only victory enough to ensure that their European fate is in their own hands going into the final round of group-stage fixtures.
