Terry wants Hiddink to stay at Chelsea

Monday, April 13, 2009

John Terry wants the Chelsea board to find a way of keeping Guus Hiddink at Stamford Bridge for next season.

Hiddink is in interim charge at Chelsea but his responsibilities as Russian national coach prevent him taking the job full time.

However, Terry hopes that Hiddink's friendship with Blues owner Roman Abramovich could lead to a way of resolving the impasse.

Terry told The Observer: "Hiddink has a good relationship with Roman Abramovich.

"Things have gone very well and I'm sure there will be talks ongoing. If we keep progressing there's only going to be one option.

"He's done brilliantly and got us playing freely. But it's down to the board to make those decisions."

With Hiddink's future very much in the air there have been whispers that José Mourinho, still in his first year at Inter Milan, could be lined up for a sensational return to Chelsea.

The Portuguese retains strong bonds with a number of Chelsea players and it's known some of the players want him back this summer.

"José was a great manager and a lot of the players are still in contact with him," Terry added. "But it's someone else's turn now to kick on."
