Hiddink: Chelsea can handle transfer ban

Russia coach Guus Hiddink says Chelsea can handle their FIFA transfer ban.

The Blues cannot recruit new players until January 2011 after breaking the rules to lure French youngster Gael Kakuta.

But Hiddink, who was in charge at Stamford Bridge for four months last season, said: "If I was at Chelsea I would be comfortable with this team.

"I still have an emotional pull to Chelsea. I loved it there."
