Former Italy midfielder Roberto Di Matteo was named manager of relegated Premier League side West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday.

The 39-year-old – capped 34 times by his country but forced to retire because of injury in 2002 – signed a one year rolling contract after a successful spell as coach of League One side MK Dons.

Di Matteo – who was born in Switzerland took the MK Dons to last season’s League One play-offs – replaces Tony Mowbray, who left to manage Scottish giants Celtic earlier this month.

Di Matteo enjoyed a successful playing career especially with Chelsea with whom he won two FA Cups and a League Cup as well as the now defunct European Cup Winner’s Cup.

However, he was forced to retire after never fully recovering from a triple fracture of the leg.
