Guus Hiddink on Jose Mourinho, the top four and being Chelsea's manager next season as well


Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink says his focus is on doing well until the end of the season and that he is not looking beyond the month of May.

The Dutchman took over from Jose Mourinho after the Portuguese was sacked by the club last week.

And he says a Top Four finish is a possibility as he faced the media for the first time on Wednesday morning.

"[Jose Mourinho?] If you look at his record over the years it is amazing," the Dutchman said.

"There were many, many titles. But nevertheless things happen in football. People take decisions that they have taken and I come on when I am asked.

"[Staying beyond May?] "What we said was 'Let's go to May'. Then we will see.

"I hope the fans will support the team, as they did briefly during the last game. The fans must also think and express themselves about the recent past. The team has to take the initiative. What I know of Chelsea is that the fans back up the team, but the team has to show it first.

"[The Top Four?] Mathematically it is possible.

"If you can add up then it is possible but this league is very strong, which has been especially proven this year with all respect to the clubs at the top - Leicester, Crystal Palace, Watford... it is amazing and refreshing.

"It means that all the teams can kill each other."
