Guus Hiddink: I had to part Steve Holland and Mauricio Pochettino after hectic encounter


Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink says players and managers needed to be pulled apart at the end of last night's game which saw Leicester City being crowned Champions in England.

Tottenham Hotspur's draw at Stamford Bridge means Spurs can no longer win the title as they failed to hang on to a two-goal lead.

And the Dutchman says everything became "too emotional" after the final whistle.

"It was a very emotional and hectic game," Hiddink told reporters.

"If you see the game back I think the first half was tight, a good game from Spurs' side.

"We gave them one or two easy presents and they went 2-0 up, which was difficult to handle. At half-time we talked, made some changes and the team reacted very well. To be honest, there were some incidents which were not good.

"There was a bit of verbal animosity [at the end of the game] and I tried to come in between and go into the locker room. Everyone started dancing around and pushing around.

"I tried to get [Cesc] Fabregas in because there were some words in Spanish and I understand Spanish. More people became involved and we shuffled around.

"If you've done some judo and wrestling you can easily fall. You must not have these type of incidents but it happens and at the end we must all calm down.

"For them there was a lot at stake, for us there was prestige at stake. There is rivalry between the two London clubs which makes it hot as well. Before I judge the incidents I must look very calmly at a video. It was an emotional game between two big clubs.

"I had to come in between a lot of people tonight. It happens a lot in the Latin world, a lot of emotion. Steve [Holland] got very emotional as well and I had to part my colleague and Mauricio [Pochettino]."
