Hiddink quiet on Chelsea return

Turkey manager Guus Hiddink has remained coy on his possible return to the Premier League after recent reports linked the 64-year-old to a second stint in charge of Chelsea.

Hiddink guided Turkey to a respectable 1-1 draw with Belgium in their Euro 2012 qualifier on Friday night, but remained tight-lipped over his future plans after the match.

"I hope you understand that this is difficult and I need people to respect that,' he said. "I am going on holiday now and I have a plane to catch."

"I still have a contract with Turkey but at my age when some issues come up, you always have to talk about them. At my age, most of my story is behind me."

When asked if he intended on returning to coach Turkey beyond the period of his current one-year contract, Hiddink simply added: "I can't answer that. Everything is fluid."

Hiddink coached at Stamford Bridge as caretaker manager in 2009 following the sacking of Brazilian Luis Felipe Scolari. During his four-month spell, the Dutchman won the respect of many of Chelsea's senior players, including skipper John Terry, and ultimately led the team to FA Cup glory in his final game at the helm.

But again, when pressed on the matter on Friday, Hiddink offered little.

"My time at Chelsea was a beautiful time. Everybody knows that," he said.
