Hiddink: Chelsea morale was rock bottom

Guus Hiddink admits morale at Chelsea was rock bottom upon his arrival.

"When we started in February, everyone knows what the situation was," said Hiddink after winning Saturday's FA Cup final.

"There was this fear we would drift into fifth or sixth. Morale was not good.

"Roman (Abramovich) wanted me to get Chelsea into the first three places to qualify for the Champions League. Then we had to set some other targets because the revival of the team has been terrific."
