Chelsea’s Oscar praises Hiddink appointment and reveals interest in signature

Chelsea midfielder Oscar has spoken out about the positive impact that Guus Hiddink has had on the playing squad, while also claiming there was interest in him from China.

The Blues turned the corner following the change in management in December, and have gone unbeaten in domestic competition since Hiddink was appointed as caretaker manager.

The Dutch boss has only tasted defeat once, in European competition on Tuesday night away to Paris Saint-Germain, but they still have a very decent chance of qualifying from the tie.

Oscar has moved to praise Hiddink’s arrival, saying: “(The coach) has been very good for the attacking players and he has really emphasised the importance of playing good football and creating lots of chances and scoring more goals,” Oscar said on The Sunday Times.

“All the attackers have felt that (message) and the improvement is clear for everyone to see.”

“He wants to see us be compact all the time.

“Based on how well Guus has been doing so far, he could very well stay.”

The playmaker also revealed there was interest in him from China, but he had no wish to leave the club.

“It’s a good move (for Ramires),” Oscar said.

“As for me, there was interest but I have no desire to leave Europe, Chelsea are a fantastic very big club and I’m still young.

“I’m 24 so I have a lot of football here ahead of me.”
