Guus Hiddink in London to negotiate with Chelsea

London, Dec 19 (IANS) Former the Netherlands football team head coach Guus Hiddink is in London to negotiate a possibile signing with Chelsea, after the club fired Portuguese Jose Mourinho on Thursday.

Hiddink has not coached any team since he left Dutch national team after poor results in the qualifiers for Euro 2016, reports Efe.

The Dutchman previously trained Chelsea between February and June 2009, and led them to win the FA Cup and to reach the Champions League semifinals, before being eliminated by Barcelona.

“I want to get some good insight before I make my decision,” Fox Sports quoted Hiddink as saying.

Throughout his managerial career, Hiddink has coached Valencia, Real Madrid, Real Betis, PSV Eindhoven, Turkey, South Korea, Russia and the Netherlands.
