Scunthorpe striker Kevin van Veen hoping to catch up with Chelsea boss Hiddink

Scunthorpe United striker Kevin van Veen hopes to catch up with Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink today.

Van Veen was with PSV Eindhoven's academy while Hiddink was senior coach and hopes to start in today's FA Cup tie.

"I don't think he will remember me, but his job is to analyse us, so he will know I am Dutch, and it would be good for him to know me afterwards. If I get to speak to him I will wish him success," said Van Veen, ahead of the League One club's third-round trip to Chelsea.

"For every Dutch human being he is a legend, someone to look up to, and if you got everyone in Holland to vote who was the best coach they would go for Guus Hiddink, then after that Louis van Gaal.

"When he makes a decision it always seems to be right and has such a big presence when he comes into a club.

"Normally you see that a head coach focuses on the first team but he was always watching the younger teams, every age, from morning til night."
