Euro repeat is Mission Impossible for Roberto Di Matteo
TOUGH TASK ... Roberto Di Matteo

ROBERTO DI MATTEO wants to become the new Tom Cruise and achieve his very own Mission Impossible.

The Chelsea boss is bidding to become the first manager in the competition’s history to win back-to-back Champions League finals.

But he admits the odds are stacked against him as the Blues kick off their title defence against runaway Serie A winners Juventus tonight.

Di Matteo claimed: “The Champions League has proved impossible for anybody to win twice in a row but we will try to do the impossible.

“The competition is fierce and every season strong new teams come into the tournament, like Paris St Germain and Juventus.

“We have three national champions in our group and the competition this year is probably even stronger than last season.

“Sir Alex Ferguson said you have to win the Champions League two or three times to be remembered as a great team.

“I’m not sure how many times you have to win it to be remembered but I always have respect for what Sir Alex has to say.

“Juventus are a very strong team. They had a fantastic unbeaten run throughout Serie A last season and they have quality, experienced and dynamic players in their team.
