Chelsea have confirmed that Guus Hiddink will take charge of the club until the end of the season.Hiddink, who amazingly revealed that he has no need for a contract, is due in London to meet the players and plans to attend the Blues' FA Cup tie against Watford on Saturday.In a statement on the club's official website, Chelsea thanked the Russian Football Union after they agreed to let Hiddink take on the role while managing Russia. Guus is currently the head coach of the Russian national team.
Blues owner Roman Abramovich moved quickly to get his man after sacking Brazilian coach Luiz Felipe Scolari on Monday.Hiddink has a close relationship with Abramovich and added: 'I don't have to sign a contract. It's not a question of money.'Hiddink added that he intended to contact his predecessor, Scolari, to discuss the team. He faces a bitter backlash in Russia over the lucrative deal which will see him take over at Chelsea, while remaining at the helm of the Russian national team.
