Italy's Antonio Conte can help Chelsea lift the English Premier League crown, interim manager Guus Hiddink told reporters on Friday.
The Dutchman believes the 46-year-old possesses the right qualities to help the club get back on winning terms.
He will take charge immediately after this summer's UEFA European Championship.
"It's the choice of the club and when you look at his record he had a good spell at Juventus, where he won the title in Italy," Hiddink said.
"That's always good because this club is always keen to play for titles.
"It's a big job regardless of the circumstances Chelsea have been in this year. He is equipped, able and used to the pressure which is always on at big clubs to win titles.
"He was presented on Monday and requested to come and meet and shake hands with the players. Everyone met very briefly on Tuesday."
