Outgoing Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink has hinted that he may be given another role at the club after he steps down as manager this summer.
Antonio Conte will replace the Dutchman after Italy’s Euro 2016 campaign as last year’s champions will be looking to recover from the worst title defence in Premier League history.
Reports have claimed that Roman Abramovich is keen to keep the former Netherlands boss at Stamford Bridge in an advisory role, and the 69-year-old admits he would relish the chance to improve the club’s youth system.
“I’m not definitely going away, I’d like to be involved with the development of players, like Tammy [Abraham] and maybe some others, not just in the club but outside the club, that’s what I’d like to do very much, we’ll see what will happen in the upcoming time,” the Dutchman told Sky Sports after Wedesnday’s 1-1 draw with Liverpool.
Chelsea cannot finish higher than ninth this season.
