The Turkey manager Guus Hiddink has today dropped the biggest hint yet that he is keen to return to Chelsea and work with Roman Abramovich. Although he is working with Turkey, their chances of qualifying for Euro2012 would take a severe knock if they are beaten by Belgium on Friday.
He doesn’t want to affect the confidence of Turkish players ahead of the game, but he left little to the imagination when he said: “There is no official offer yet, but I can’t guarantee anything.
“I haven’t told the chairman (Mahmut Ozgener) what my thoughts are yet. But he is an intelligent man – I’m sure he follows the world’s media.’
“I never told anybody I was going to continue working here.
“The team is focused on me, I would affect the team negatively if I answered the speculation.”
He then went on to say that he would even be happy doing both jobs at the same time, as just managing
a country is just a part-time job in reality.
“I feel so energetic, so a club role is more preferable.” he continued. “That’s what I like, working everyday. I feel I need to do more.
“I’ve trained Australia and PSV at the same time, as well as Russia and Chelsea and I was very happy. We’ll see what happens with Turkey.”
I have a feeling that if Turkey lose this weekend, Hiddink will part ways with the team by mutual agreement, and then a couple of weeks later he will be named as Chelsea manager!
