Roberto Di Matteo says that his destiny is in his own hands despite Pep Guardiola's interest in Chelsea job.

Roberto Di Matteo has said that speculation linking Pep Guardiola to the Chelsea manager's role doesn't affect him.

The 42-year-old insists that he has the backing of Roman Abramovich, despite reports suggesting the former Barcelona boss is keen to take over at Stamford Bridge.

Di Matteo told Sky Sports News: "From day one, the speculation has always been in the papers, so it doesn't affect me too much.

"I have my own destiny in my hands and the club and the owner is behind it."

Di Matteo took interim charge of Chelsea after the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas in March, and was made permanent manager after winning the Champion League.
