Roberto Di Matteo insists he will have "no problem" if winning the Champions League failed to convince Chelsea to give him the manager's job full-time.
Caretaker boss Di Matteo gave his clearest hint yet that he does not expect owner Roman Abramovich to keep him on beyond the end of the season after Sunday's Premier League win over Blackburn Rovers.
The 2-1 victory at Stamford Bridge could be Di Matteo's final home game at the helm and although he gave little away in his post-match lap of honour, his press conference was a different matter.
Asked if he thought the outcome of Saturday's Champions League final with Bayern Munich would determine whether he was at the club next season, Di Matteo said: "I don't think so, no, but I have no problem with it."
Di Matteo added of the lap of honour: "We've had a very intense nine weeks here together and it's been fantastic.
"And we are all looking forward to next Saturday as well.
"It's been very emotional because I feel very responsible with this club because I've played here, I've been part of it.
"So, it's been a nice day."
