Has Hiddink Ruled Himself Out?

Anyone out there who are hanging their hats on Guus Hiddink returning to Chelsea, this summer, in some kind of capacity, might want to look away now.

It appears that the Dutchman may not be leaving his Russian base at the end of the season and that Anzi Mackhackala may well benefit from his knowledge a little longer with Guus being reported as having commented, by news sources, as having said,

"Yes I`ve said indeed that I was going to quit my career at the end of this season, it`s true."

"But if Anzi stay ambitious in their aspirations for the future everything is possible."


Ouch!

It's vague. Nothing from his comments expressely indicates that he'll not coming here. I'd like to see him here, honestly. He can calm the storm and may be our usual october blues may well be over.

the interview with Hiddink is not complete...he actually mentioned that he is the only coach not to have been sacked at chelsea (which is true) and will be very mich interested in a return...he said anzhi remain an option for him if they remain competitive but there is no guarantee he will stay with them next year...we'll have to wait and see.....

He also mentioned frank as well, what he said was interesting I thought. http://www.express.co.uk/sport/football/381498/Guus-Hiddink-hints-at-return-to-replace-Rafa-Benitez-at-Chelsea. Please let this happen, it would be a travesty if he didn't have a premier league title on his cv and maybe a champions league too before he does retire. If he could h would go down as one of the greats. He wasn't here long enough last time, and we fans need a lift, Guus will give that. I also think he should be the one to choose the next coach, especially if he becomes DOF. Anyway seems something's in the water with pellegrini, we opened talks apparently. http://www.express.co.uk/sport/football/381776/Chelsea-contact-Manuel-Pellegrini-with-view-to-bringing-him-to-Stamford-Bridge.

Hiddink already has a champions league in his CV I think, with PSV was it? I agree with layorh that the interview wasn't complete, he is just playing possum for now

Desmond: came out wrong, I meant it would be nice to see him win another one, just think we could have had it in 09 if ovrebo hadn't stuck his nose in. Then Guus would have had to stay!

We had the opportunity to sign him in 2011, but we went for AVB instead. Pretty much sums up our club well being. People keep saying Jose Mourinho has unfinished business with us. Well, the same applies to Guus, as I remember fondly him saying the only regret that he had during his wonderful time with us; leading our team against Man Utd. Top guy, would love to have him back at the Bridge

Hiddink as "DOF" will only destabilize the Manager-player-board relations especially as he appears keen to continue managing because any "pressure" on the manager will be further hiked by the knowledge that there's basically some1 that still feels they can do a better job.

As a manager it will even be worse because a 3 month stint is VASTLY DIFFERENT from a full season including player purchases, youth development etc. Guus won't make a good manager, with all the evident emotion-induced "perception" of his abilities at the highest level I see another Dalglish in blue (no offense). Besides, his football was more functional that recreational (if you know what I mean)

lOL @ MQ u compare guus to daglish. my god daglish cant do 1/10th of what guus has done. and u just go and watch our 2008-09 how he tactically outsmart ur pep(the greatest coach acc to u) who was simply cluless in whole 180 mins against chelsea.

it's not that i'm not a hiddink fan but.... his overall managerial record is at best mediocre. people rush to talk about his very successful three month spell in 2009 but it's worth looking at the bigger picture. and he doesn't seem to stay in any one place for very long. and he's 67 years old. he'd be better than the waiter but... WHO WOULDN'T BE?

well said KEN ppl seem to think 3 months of functional football is similar to 1 full season under pressure to win titles. As RDM how tough it is meeting expectations LoL
