Perhaps it's the perfect coda to a crazy 24 hours.  As the Sun set in the far west and rose in the far east, bleary eyed scribes at the Australian FA have decided that they could no longer keep their secrets.  Chelsea's new interim manager will be none other than Guus Hiddink.

Hiddink was Socceroos coach for just a year, from July 2005 through the following summer's World Cup, but he's well loved by them still.  They join yesterday's rumors, and Mateja Kezman, too, in claiming that Hiddink will be the next Chelsea manager, taking the job on an interim basis for a second time.

Guus Hiddink has taken temporary charge at struggling EPL giant Chelsea after the club announced they'd sacked coach Jose Mourinho overnight following the club's disastrous run in the English Premier League.

I guess we now just have to wait for Chelsea to officially announce something as well.
