The appointment was a disaster. Chelsea were unable to push for the league and Villas-Boas was out by March, to be replaced by assistant Roberto Di Matteo. From one extreme to the other, Di Matteo could not seal a top four spot but managed to win the FA Cup and delivered Roman's primary prize, the Champions League, with a penalty shoot-out win over Bayern Munich. That was enough to get him the job on a permanent basis.
