Anzhi coach Guus Hiddink refuses to rule out a shock return to Chelsea.
Hiddink had previously he hinted might be about to retire, but has now revealed his interest in taking on a new challenge.
And having already developed a strong relationship with Chelsea's players, Hiddink left the door open for a return.
He said: "I enjoyed my time there very much. I was there almost half a year and in 27 or 30 games, we lost only to Tottenham Hotspur and in the rest achieved good results. On top of that, I really enjoyed working with the group of players.
"They have gone through a lot of changes. I'm the only man who wasn't sacked.
"I said to Dutch television that I might stop at the end of the season, but we have other options to go on with [Anzhi].
"And regarding other clubs, I'm 66 now and will be 67 in autumn. As long as I feel energetic and I'm not becoming an old, bitter, sour man, then I can go on. But I cannot predict where I am next season."
Can Hiddink work his magic again? Or should Chelsea stick with Benitez? Give us your shout below...
