Hiddink agrees new Blues role


Recommended Posts

Guus Hiddink has accepted an offer to become a technical adviser with Chelsea after stepping down as manager.

The Dutchman took the reins at Stamford Bridge in February following the dismissal of Luiz Felipe Scolari.

He helped the Blues finish third in the Premier League and advance to the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League, where they came within moments of knocking out eventual winners Barcelona.

A number of Chelsea players pleaded with Hiddink to remain in charge beyond the end of the season but he always maintained that he would be resuming his role as full-time Russia boss.

Hiddink will now do just that after signing off as Chelsea manager on Saturday with victory over Everton in the FA Cup final.

It was an emotional farewell for the 61-year-old but he has now indicated that he will continue to work with the club in a new capacity.

"I will be in continuous contact with the club. Chelsea have asked me to become technical adviser," he said in the Sunday Mirror.

"You don't think I was going to turn that offer down, do you?"

I have a feeling that if Ancelotti is given the job, we could bring back Hiddink after the World Cup if things go a bit Scolari next season.

We have shown that we're not slow about making a decision to get shafted of a manager and with the success Hiddink brought in a limited space of time it could be tempting given the bond he created with everyone within the club.

You heard it here first :D

I have thought the same thing but I don't see that happening with Ancelotti with his past success and proven record.

Plus, with Guus' age....I suspect he is out for good HC wise
