Roberto Di Matteo sacking at Chelsea understandable - Elliott

Former Chelsea player Paul Elliott says he understands the reasons behind the sacking of Roberto Di Matteo.

Elliott says that although it was probably a hard a decision to make - the results this season in the League and in the Champions League haven't lived up to the owners standards.

Roberto Di Matteo becomes the seventh manager to be sacked by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.

Rafael Benitez has since been appointed interim first-team manager.
