Is Guus Hiddink to make a Chelsea return, following Ancelotti's departure?

23rd May 2011 - Chad Lazarus

Rumours suggest that Guus Hiddink is being lined up as the next Chelsea football manager, after Carlo Ancelotti was given his marching orders.

The Italian football manager was informed of the club's decision shortly after their final football game of the season ended against Everton.

Dutchman Hiddink enjoyed a temporary stint at Chelsea during which time he helped the team to win the 2009 FA Cup Final.

His agent, Cees van Nieuwenhuizen, has refused to rule out Hiddink for a return to the Stamford Bridge sidelines.

However, he told the Press Association that Hiddink unlikely to be available until November, because he is still under contract as Turkey's national team football manager.

Hiddink is contracted as Turkey coach until the end of Euro 2012. Other prominent football managers that have been linked with the vacant post include Fulham manager Mark Hughes and, perhaps more bizarrely, former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.
