Chelsea insist Hiddink will leave

13 April 2009 02:55
Buck dismissed speculation Hiddink would remain at Stamford Bridge beyond the end of the season and said the club have stepped up their search for a new manager. "There has been a lot of speculation about Hiddink staying, particularly as he has been doing a great job. It is purely a temporary role," Buck said. "It is now up to the board to find a new manager for the long term and that is a process we have started and is ongoing." Hiddink has lost only one of the 11 games he has been in charge of the Blues, guiding the team back into the title race and earning them an FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal on 18 April. On Tuesday they face Liverpool in the Champions League quarter-final second leg, holding a commanding 3-1 lead from the first leg at Anfield.
