Roberto Di Matteo Joint-Favourite for Kilmarnock Manager’s Job

Roberto Di Matteo Joint-Favourite for Kilmarnock Manager’s Job

Champions League-winning coach Roberto Di Matteo is one of the surprise early candidates to become the new Kilmarnock boss, following Steve Clarke‘s decision to leave for the Scotland post earlier this week.

Clarke departed Rugby Park with the Ayrshire club third in the Premiership – just 20 months after he’d taken the reins with them bottom of the pile, and it seems his work has made Killie a more attractive proposition for high-profile coaches.

According to the Sun, ex-Chelsea and Schalke gaffer Di Matteo is priced at 2/1, the same odds offered for current Livingston manager and Killie hero Gary Holt.

Ally McCoist and Paul Clement are priced at 8/1, whilst Clarke’s assistant Alex Dyer is priced at 6/1.

Di Matteo shocked European football when he led Chelsea to the Champions League crown in 2012, beating Bayern Munich on penalties in their own stadium in the final.

But the 48-year-old hasn’t managed since leaving Aston Villa in 2016 – so is he the right man to take Kilmarnock forward?
