Guus Hiddink: Wants to return to Stamford Bridge

Guus Hiddink admitted that he will stay at Chelsea in some capatcity, despite losing his job to incoming Italian boss Antonio Conte.

The Blues drew 1-1 at home to Premier League champions Leicester City in the Dutchman’s ‘farewell’, after Danny Drinkwater’s late strike cancelled out a Cesc Fabregas penalty.

Hiddink conceded that it wasn’t the best performance from Chelsea in what has been a disappointing title defence.

“It was a typical end of the season game where there was nothing at stake. We were sloppy after the penalty and they got the equaliser.

“Until December, there were big worries as the club were one point away form the relegation zone. My first task was to get away from that and in two months we were out. As a second target, we wanted to go further and get to the top-four.

“As long as the youngsters don’t say, hey grandad it’s time to go, I still want to carry on.

“I think that I’ll be back here, every now and then. Not in the limelight, just hidden a bit. I am going to help out with the academy boys.”

He also spoke about the future of John Terry, who may have played his last game for the club.

“John Terry and the club are in contact and that is good. We must not rock the boat. In Holland we say, don’t disturb the hen that is sitting on the egg.”

He added: “It’s not going to be easy. We were all aware of what other clubs can do. We’ve seen Leicester, Tottenham and West Ham.

“Other clubs are knocking on the door. Having more finances next season, with smart recruiting. I don’t think it’s a done deal that the established clubs of the past are established for the future.”

    Who is he returning for if i may ask? i understand he said he wants to work with the young players. could it be Mikel and Co in the Academy? because all i see in him is a manager that is obsessed with Mikel at the expense of our young players.

    This could be an interesting move. I am assuming that having spent 2 stints in the EPL and he vast experience that he may be seen as someone to assist Conte in his transitional season

    Equally, he seems excited about our players from the academy so maybe he will help to cultivate these and improve the transition from youth/academy to the first team..?

    There is obviously an affection for the Club so if we can utilise his vast experience then why not try. He may even be able to work with and assist JT in his proposed new role…?

    Obviously more clarification would be required but a potentially interesting move by the Club. KTBFFH
