Doubt over futures of Chelsea's Munich heroes

Three of Chelsea's Champions League heroes do not know if they will be at Stamford Bridge next season after the club refused to be rushed over their futures.

Manager Roberto Di Matteo and strikers Didier Drogba and Fernando Torres all face uncertain futures with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich taking his time over who he wants to stay in west London.

Chief executive Ron Gourlay has revealed the club will wait until Di Matteo's contract expires at the end of June before deciding on his future despite the interim manager delivering the Champions League and FA Cup.

On di Matteo, Gourlay told Chelsea TV: "I know the fans will be pushing for Robbie. We're going to look at the season, look at what worked for us, look at the mistakes we made and put them right and take it forward.

"Conversations with Didier have been going on for months and still are. He's made it clear he loves Chelsea and loves everything he's achieved at the club.

"Torres came on when we were behind and played a big part to help us win the Champions League," he said. "I'd be surprised if Fernando, who's been awesome, didn't want more time on the field, every player does."
