Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink admits he loves the mickey-taking culture of English football.
Hiddink said: âI love London very much. It is good to be here. I love self-irony, which is so common in England.
âYou can look at yourselves in the mirror and say âhow stupid I amâ â this is good to see.
âOn the other hand, working very seriously is the other part.â
Hiddinkâs first taste of Britainâs unique sense of humour came when he shared a flat with the late George Best when the pair played for American side San Jose Earthquakes.
The Dutchman said: âYou sense this typical approach which is going to the game but also the sense of humour and mickey-taking. Laughing at yourself. Giving 100 and more per cent.â
