"The club is still competing in the latter stages of the Uefa Champions League and the FA Cup, as well as challenging for a top-four spot in the Premier League, and we aim to remain as competitive as possible on all fronts.
"With that in mind we felt our only option was to make a change at this time.
"With immediate effect Roberto Di Matteo has been appointed first team coach on an interim basis until the end of the season."

What a classy club Chelski is! A public statement like is a disgrace! There is no need to mention the reason the parting of company as it is too obvious. Really poor PR
to be honest. Now if Di Matteo is to be coaching till the end of season, they are saying he is in a better position than AVB in bringing the club to the glory they have mentioned in a big paragraph?!
Am sure it is a bit embarrassing to be a Chelsea fan these days.
