Hiddink Ponders Mancienne Option

22 April 2009 09:09
Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink has admitted Michael Mancienne could be asked to mark Lionel Messi when the Blues face Barcelona next week.

Mancienne was trialled at left-back during the reserves' draw with West Brom on Monday as Hiddink looks at possible replacements for the suspended Ashley Cole in the Champions League encounter.

The England Under-21 international insists he is ready to answer the call to fill in if required and Hiddink has confirmed Mancienne is in his thinking.

"Mancienne is an option to play left-back against Barcelona," said Hiddink.
