Defender Jonas Olsson today revealed he was against West Bromwich Albion’s decision to sack Roberto Di Matteo – but admitted it has worked out well.
Di Matteo returns to The Hawthorns as Chelsea boss tomorrow, 21 months after being shown the door by the Baggies.
Olsson said: “I rate him very highly. I was very clear when the club sacked him that I wasn’t in favour of it.
“But everything happens for a reason and for him and for us it turned out well. We got Roy Hodgson as manager and really pushed on from there and Roberto went to Chelsea and has a fantastic career there.”
