Chelsea face £14M bill for Turkey coach Hiddink

Chelsea want Guus Hiddink to QUIT his Turkey job.

The Daily Star says Chelsea have told Hiddink to walk out on Turkey - or they will turn to Mark Hughes as their new boss.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich does not want to pay the £3.5m compensation the Turkish FA want to release Hiddink.

A 1-1 draw with Belgium on Friday in a Euro 2012 qualifier provoked hostile newspaper headlines including 'He betrayed us' and 'Good riddance'.

And although the compensation appears small change for billionaire Abramovich, he is determined not to cough up more than he has to. He is willing to pay Hiddink £6m a year at Stamford Bridge but insists he must force his way out of his current job first.
