No chance Guus Hiddink will join Chelsea next season - agent

Former Australia and South Korea boss will reject any approach from Blues and honour his contract with Turkey, his representative has claimed

Guus Hiddink’s agent has moved to quash speculation that the Dutchman is set to replace Carlo Ancelotti as Chelsea coach.

There have been question marks over Ancelotti’s future after Chelsea were knocked out of the Champions League by Manchester United and Hiddink has been linked with a possible return to the Blues in either a coaching capacity or in a role upstairs.

However, speaking to Reuters, his representative Cees van Nieuwenhuizen ruled out any prospect of the Dutch tactician taking over at Stamford Bridge, instead asserting that his client would see out his current contract with the Turkish national team.

“No chance,” said van Nieuwenhuizen, when questioned about Chelsea.

"Guus has always honored his contracts, and when he signed with Turkey he guaranteed them he would not leave until the deal had expired."

Hiddink has had a close relationship with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, coaching the side to a FA Cup title during the second half of the 2008-09 season.
