Guus Hiddink on the draw, the end of the season and John Terry's future


Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink says it was vital for the club to stay in the English Premier League after today's last game of the season.

The Blues were in a very critical position in the table when the Dutchman took over in December.

But they managed to finish in 10th place as they prepare to welcome Italy's Antonio Conte as their new manager.

"It was a typical end of the season game where there was nothing at stake," Hiddink is quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

"We were sloppy after the penalty and they got the equaliser.

"Until December, there were big worries as the club were one point away form the relegation zone. My first task was to get away from that and in two months we were out. As a second target, we wanted to go further and get to the top-four.

"As long as the youngsters don't say, hey grandad it's time to go, I still want to carry on.

"John Terry and the club are in contact and that is good. We must not rock the boat. In Holland we say, don't disturb the hen that is sitting on the egg."
