Former Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo has joined Jeonbuk Motors as a technical adviser, according to the South Korean club.
Di Matteo, who led Chelsea to Champions League and FA Cup glory as a caretaker manager in 2012, has not managed since leaving Aston Villa in 2016.
Despite winning two major trophies with Chelsea, the 52-year-old Italian has only had three brief managerial stints since 2012, failing to hold down head coaching positions for more than a season at Chelsea, Aston Villa, and Schalke.
After a seven-year absence from management, Di Matteo has taken on a new challenge as a technical adviser at Jeonbuk Motors.
“It is an honour and privilege that I become part of Jeonbuk Hyundai, the best club in Asia, as technical director,” Di Matteo said.
“I’m excited to share my experiences with the coaching staff.”
Last season, Jeonbuk Motors ended a run of five consecutive championships.
In the K-League, they finished second to Ulsan Hyundai.
