Chelsea man­ager Roberto Di Mat­teo has been sacked af­ter the Euro­pean cham­pi­ons were left fac­ing elim­i­na­tion at the group stage of the Cham­pi­ons League, the club said on Wed­nes­day.

"Chelsea Football Club has parted com­pany this morn­ing with Man­ager Roberto Di Mat­teo," a state­ment said, fol­low­ing Tues­day's 3-0 de­feat by Ju­ven­tus. Chelsea said the team's "re­cent per­for­mances and re­sults have not been good enough".

"The club faces a dif­fi­cult task ahead in qual­i­fy­ing for the knock­out stages of the UEFA Cham­pi­ons League as well as main­tain­ing a strong chal­lenge for the top of the Premier League while com­pet­ing in three other cup com­pe­ti­tions," they added.

Even vic­tory at home to Dan­ish side FC Nord­s­jael­land in their fi­nal group match may not be enough, as a draw be­tween Ju­ven­tus and Shakhtar Donetsk in the other Group D game would take both sides into the last 16.
