Turkey coach rules out managing Chelsea

7:16 am on 16 April 2011

Guus Hiddink's agent has ruled out any prospect of the Dutchman becoming the Chelsea football coach for the start of the new season in August, if the London club decide to sack Carlo Ancelotti.

Cees van Nieuwenhuizen told Reuters that Hiddink, who coached Chelsea for a brief spell in 2009, would remain in charge of Turkey until at least the end of the Euro 2012 qualifying campaign in November.

Hiddink agreed a four-year contract, with the final two years optional, in February 2010.

Earlier Ancelotti had said it would be "no problem" if he was sacked at the end of this season, a campaign which looks like being trophy-less for Chelsea.
