ShareChelsea captain John Terry would welcome the appointment of Mark Hughes or Guus Hiddink as boss.

The Blues are looking for a successor to Carlo Ancelotti and Hughes, who resigned as Fulham boss on Thursday, and Turkey coach Hiddink have been linked with the role.

Hiddink enjoyed a successful spell in caretaker charge of Chelsea two years ago, winning the FA Cup, while Hughes played at Stamford Bridge for three years.

'There's a lot of speculation out there at the moment,' Terry told a press conference ahead of England's Euro 2012 qualifier against Switzerland.

'I was very sad to see Carlo go, and as a group of players we will wait for the club to make a decision. There's a lot of managers been linked at the moment.'

On Hughes, Terry added: 'He's someone that hopefully the club will be talking to. If it's him he will be welcomed by the players.'

He added: 'We had a great time under Guus, he would be welcomed back.

'Whether we are going to get someone who knows the club or someone different, that's out of the players hands.'

Ancelotti was sacked barely an hour after Chelsea's final game of the season, a 1-0 defeat to Everton on May 22.

The Italian paid the price for failing to retain the Barclays Premier League title and, perhaps more significantly, going out of the Champions League at the quarter-final stage to Manchester United.

Despite winning the club's first-ever double in his maiden season last year, Ancelotti followed it up with their worst campaign since Roman Abramovich become owner.

His successor will become Chelsea's seventh manager in the eight years since Abramovich's takeover.
