PETR Cech has called for Roberto Di Matteo to be given the Chelsea job on a permanent basis after leading the Blues to Champions League glory.
The interim boss saw his side crowned champions of Europe after a nail-biting penalty shoot-out win over Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena last night.
Di Matteo is remaining tight-lipped on his future, but keeper Cech reckons the Italian deserves the job after securing the FA Cup and Champions League in a memorable season for Blues fans.
He said: "Whatever happens to him he's got two fantastic cups and he's deserved that. I think he's done enough to get the job but now it's up to the board to decide."
Cech denied Arjen Robben from the spot in extra-time before the Blues edged the shoot-out 4-3, with Didier Drogba clinching the trophy.
And he admits the triumph has help erase the heartbreak Chelsea suffered in Moscow four years ago.
He added: "When we lost the penalty shoot-out against Manchester United in Moscow maybe it was not meant to be our moment. But as a player you hope you will have the same opportunity to play the final.
"It was a rollercoaster road, we all enjoyed it, and we got there in the end. I faced six penalties and six times I went the right way, four times I touched the ball."
