Chelsea go cold over Dutch pair Hiddink, Rijkaard

Chelsea have gone cold over Dutch pair Guus Hiddink and Frank Rijkaard in the search for a new manager, it has been revealed.

BBC Sport says Mark Hughes, Roberto Mancini and Luis Felipe Scolari are among those on Chelsea's shortlist for the managerial job. But Hiddink, Rijkaard and Sven Goran-Eriksson are not major contenders to replace Avram Grant.

Blackburn manager Hughes has impressed during his three-and-a-half year spell at Ewood Park, guiding Rovers to seventh in the Premier League last season. He has emerged as a top contender as Chelsea seek an appointment which will be welcomed by fans.
