Is Hiddink certain to return to the Bridge?

Two years ago, we were all singing: "We want you to stay, we want you to stay, Guus Hiddink, we want you to stay!" Our temporary manager Hiddink's response was always along the lines of, "Thanks, but I'm not interested in coaching club football on a permanent basis, bye!" It seems the Goose has now changed his tune and given a clear indication that he is on his way back to the Blues.

Hiddink, via the Guardian:

"I never told anybody that I was going to continue working with Turkey.

"I feel energetic and I like working every day. I feel I need to do more, so a club role is more preferable than coaching a national team. I haven't told the president of the Turkish FA. But he is an intelligent man and I'm sure he follows the world's media. There is no official offer yet, so I cannot guarantee anything."

"I feel I need to do more. I've trained Australia and PSV at the same time, as well as Russia and Chelsea, and I was very happy. We'll see what happens with Turkey."

He also claims that Roman Abramovich has not been in touch with him about taking over at Chelsea. Similarly, Carlo Ancelotti, while still in charge at AC Milan, kept saying that he hadn't been in touch with anyone at Chelsea either, when clearly that deal was in place for a while before the end of Hiddink's brief tenure. He even admits it in his autobiography. So we don't believe you, Guus.

So is Hiddink a dead cert now? If Turkey lose their qualifier this weekend, how soon afterward do you think his new job will be announced? Then, the silly season truly begins!
