Chelsea have benefitted from Hiddink giving attacking players freedom – Oscar

Oscar has revealed that the attacking freedom handed by manager Guus Hiddink has brought about a massive improvement in Chelsea.

Chelsea have most certainly managed to steady the ship following the arrival of Hiddink and as a testament to this fact, the Blues sealed their place in the quarter final of the FA Cup with a thumping 5-1 victory over Manchester City on Sunday.

Now midfielder Oscar has revealed that Hiddink has allowed his players to play with more attacking freedom and believes that such liberation has been crucial in the reigning Premier League champion's drastic improvement.

Oscar told The Sun: "Guus has been very important for the attacking players and he has really empathised the importance of playing good football, creating lots of chances and scoring more goals.

"All the attacking players have felt that and the improvement has been clear for everyone to see. I think we have been given more freedom but he wants us also to be compact. The players have definitely benefitted."
