Hiddink's loyalty card: Duty calls as Chelsea lose out to Russia
11 April 2009 02:25
Guus Hiddink embarked upon the final 50 days of his Chelsea tenure by explaining the moral obligation which will force him back to Russia in the summer.
After the euphoria of a stunning 3-1 win at Liverpool in the first leg of a Champions League quarter final, Hiddink offered his most convincing explanation to date about his own future. It would be hypocritical, he insisted, to walk out on his Russian players after demanding their loyalty over the years and it would be 'impossible' to combine the two jobs next season.
