Hiddink wanted Wilkins back

Recommended Posts

There's no way Roman would just say you aint having the job now because you demanded Wilkins returned not ti Hiddink anyway, if this is true it's probably because Guus said he would only return if Wilkins came back, the board did not want to swallow their pride and their you have it.

Doubt if this were true. Would Guus really reconsider moving to London with the wife based on not having one assistant coach ? Granted its a very important position , acting as a liason between the team and him but that sounds rather trivial for Guus to do a U-turn and stay put . Roman wouldn't be souring a working relationship and in many ways , a friendship with a big personality in world football such as Guus . Got him to coach Russia, filled his bank account and then sent that private jet to fly him over to London when needed most .

For me what's increasingly looking like the real story is that the club under-estimated the resolve of the Turkey federation to hold onto Guus and Guus' own resolve not to break a contract which he has never done in his career . Went for him , was drawing out a lot longer than expected , then the alarm bells went off when some comments came about from the Turks about reporting the club to FIFA.

Plan B - New strategy . Gamble , might pay off hugely in the long term . Villas -Boas .

Villas-Boas is to take a more hands-on approach to buying new players, hence his title of "manager" rather than "first-team coach", which is how Ancelotti was described.

Ancelotti is new Chelsea Manager

Mark included a twitter rumour in his article without even checking if it was true.

Edit: For what it's worth, Scolari was announced as a manager too [link] .
