Guus Hiddink has confirmed he is in talks with Chelsea regarding a move that would see the most successful PSV head coach ever (1987-1990 and 2002-2006) take over from Luiz Felipe Scolari as caretaker boss until the end of the season. He will combine his responsibilities coaching the Russian national team with managing Chelsea.
'Chelsea is different'
'I must admit this is an exceptional situation. If it was any other club aside from Chelsea my answer would be a straight 'No'', said 62-year-old Hiddink (62). 'But Chelsea is different because I have good relations with the owner. So I would like to help them in this situation if I could.' Roman Abramovich, the billionaire owner of Chelsea Football Club, plays a key role in bringing Hiddink to Stamford Bridge. Chelsea has obtained permission from the Russian FA to talk with Hiddink, who has gained extensive club and international experience, having coached PSV and Real Madrid as well as the Netherlands, South Korea and Australia.
