No officials word on Guus Hiddink to Chelsea yet but it is a done deal according to the Aussies – and they are a few hours ahead of us of course!
Hiddink is a legend in Australia after his spell in charge of the national team and the official Socceroos Twitter feed wished him luck in his new job at Chelsea in a post which was subsequently deleted!
As we report right here: “On its website, Football Federation Australia stated: ‘Guus Hiddink has taken temporary charge at struggling EPL giant Chelsea after the club announced they’d sacked coach Jose Mourinho overnight following the club’s disastrous run in the English Premier League.’
“The article was later updated to say that Hiddink ‘is the leading candidate to become interim manager’ of the Blues.”
The official Socceroos Twitter feed announced: “Our former boss has taken charge at @ChelseaFC – Good luck Guus!”
The tweet was subsequently taken down.
On Friday morning, Hiddink remained the overwhelming favourite with bookmakers to replace Jose Mourinho
