Guus Hiddink has salvaged Chelsea from dropping into the dreadful relegation zone and even though things have been going significantly better for the Premier League club, the Dutch coach has confirmed not only that he will be leaving Chelsea at the end of the season but also that he is retiring when his time in Stamford Bridge reaches it’s completion in only a few months.


Oscar and Obi Mikel have voiced their desire in seeing Guus Hiddink maintaining his managerial position in Chelsea for an extended period of time but unfortunately for them it just won’t be happening as the Dutch manager has other things in mind and he confirmed his decision to retire during his latest press conference.

“I feel fit, I feel fresh and, every morning, I go with a smile. Although we have a difficult time when there’s a loss, I love to go to Cobham, to the training field, so I feel fresh. On the other hand, young people must take over and I must retreat a bit. I will visit Chelsea often next season but I’m not thinking of working elsewhere” Chelsea’s Guus Hiddink said.

Chelsea has an issue that they still haven’t resolved and it’s involving which manager is going to be taking over the hot seat in Stamford Bridge when Guus Hiddink steps down. Antonio Conte and Massimiliano Allegri are a few of the high profile managers that have been linked with the coaching position of the Premier League club but still nothing has been officially confirmed. According to the bookmakers such as StanJames, Antonio Conte is the firm favourite to take over.

Manchester City already settled this problem as it was confirmed that Pep Guardiola will be taking over the team and replace Manuel Pellegrini at the end of the season, this is something that Chelsea needs to do and the sooner they do it, the better.
