Dutch manager Guus Hiddink has revealed a desire to take over at Chelsea, the Express reports.
The Blues have started the current campaign in a sketchy fashion, having succumbed to their fifth defeat in 10 league matches at the weekend, before being knocked out of the League Cup last night on penalties to Stoke City.
Jose Mourinho’s position at the helm is now under question, despite leading his side to Premier League glory only last season, and signing a new contract only this summer.
The Portuguese boss will be set for a huge record £30 Million pay-off if he is sacked against his will, and is claimed to be set to lose his job if he loses the weekend’s upcoming fixture with Liverpool.
Guus Hiddink has not helped ease the pressure on the under-performing boss, by admitting an interest in the position, which he helped temporarily in 2009.
“Top-class football is always attractive,” he told Voetbal International.
“I’ve had some offers come my way recently, but there were no jobs I wanted to get in to right away.
“We’ll see, we just have to wait now.”
