Hiddink ready to lift Chelsea

Guus Hiddink will be Luiz Felipe Scolari’s successor as Chelsea manager, but not in time for Saturday’s FA Cup tie with Watford.

Currently with the Russian national team at a training camp in Turkey, Hiddink, who will combine the two roles until the end of the season, said: “If everything is organised properly a move to London could happen. I'll be able to give you a final answer in a few days.

The Dutchman ruled out becoming Chelsea's new boss before the weekend.

"No, that's not likely to happen," he said. " I don't think things will be decided quickly."
