Di Matteo hopeful Chelsea man will be fit for Munich clash

Roberto Di Matteo is hopeful Florent Malouda will be fit for the Champions League final despite the Frenchman picking up a hamstring injury against Blackburn.

Malouda was substituted during the Blues’ 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge and his condition will be assessed on Monday.

“We took him off – it was precautionary – with a little problem with his hamstring,” Di Matteo explained.

“We’ll assess him over the next day or two but hopefully he’ll recover as soon as possible.”

Di Matteo is hoping that defenders David Luiz and Gary Cahill will also be available for the match in Munich.

Both men have been sidelined with hamstring problems and were not fit enough to return for the game against Rovers.

The Chelsea interim boss said: “They are getting better day by day. We are going to try to push them this week in training and see how far we can take them.”
