Chelsea icon Wilkins surprised Hiddink not returning

Ray Wilkins is surprised Guus Hiddink isn't returning to Chelsea.

Wilkins expressed his surprise that Hiddink, who enjoyed a successful spell as Blues boss towards the end of the 2008-09 season, now appears unlikely to take up a director of football role at the club after initially being strongly linked with the managerial vacancy.

"I don't see that (Hiddink being appointed as director of football)," said Wilkins.

"They may do that from within the club structure. It's gone quiet on Guus but I think he would have been the perfect choice."
