Guus Hiddink says he will speak to Thibaut Courtois over comments from the goalkeeper while on international duty which cast doubt over his Chelsea future.
Courtois, during the recent international break, refused to give any assurances that he would stay at a team that will be absent from the Champions League and, as yet, still has no permanent manager. Italy boss Antonio Conte has been heavily linked to the vacancy created since Jose Mourinho’s sacking in December.
Hiddink has not read Courtois’ comments, but claims they may have been misinterpreted.
He said: “Formally, he’s under contract. What I know from him, and his family, (is) he likes to be in London at the club. It’s difficult to react on what has been said or has been translated or mis-translated.
“I’d like to talk to him. But I don’t want to overvalue it (his comments).”
