Di Matteo: I don’t agree with Bale

Chelsea caretaker manager Roberto Di Matteo says he doesn’t agree with Gareth Bale in that Spurs are a better team than their London rivals.

The two teams meet tomorrow afternoon in an FA Cup semi-final at Wembley.

The Italian said: “We respect his opinion and we’ll see on Sunday. Obviously, I don’t agree with him.”

He added: “We played them twice in the league and both games were quite balanced in that sense.

“When you play a one-off game, it’s difficult to say who’s the favourite because of the form the team’s in. The dynamic of the game is different. This is a decisive game. We are in good form. We’ve been getting some good results and the players are confident.”
