Ron Gourlay wasn’t going to give anything away as to Chelsea’s next full time coach

Chelsea chief executive Ron Gourlay insisted that no decision had been made over who will be the Blues next full time manager.

Under interim head coach Roberto Di Matteo, the west London club have lifted the FA Cup and are in the Champions League final.

“I’m not going to change my mind on what I’ve said,” Gourlay admitted after his side’s FA Cup victory.

“We’ve just got to take - the cliched - one game at a time. That’s honestly the way that we’ve treated things.

“We’ve got three games left, we’ll see how we finish.

“Hopefully, we can take this forward now to Munich and make us all proud and then we’ll take things from there.”

Gourlay hailed the extraordinary turnaround Di Matteo had masterminded since replacing the sacked Andre Villas-Boas in March.

“He’s done very well since we brought him in as the interim manager and I think the players have responded particularly well as well, so there’s been a good team effort,” Gourlay said.

“When you look back and where we’ve got to, I think we’ve come a long way.”
