Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has expressed his astonishment at Chelsea counterpart Roberto di Matteo's departure just six months after winning the Champions League.
The Italian's eventful reign drew to a close in the wake of last night's 3-0 defeat by Juventus in Turin which left the Blues fighting to qualify for the knockout stages of this season's competition.
Pardew, who will lead his own team into Europa League battle against Maritimo tomorrow, said:
"The shock that should be there for the fans and the media should sound something to the owner of that football club because I don't know if that's the ninth manager or whatever it is in so many short years. It's just not fair.
"As far as I am concerned, he has done absolutely nothing wrong."
