Hiddink in new Chelsea link

BY foxsports • November 16, 2011

As expected Turkey failed to overturn a 3-0 deficit against Croatia on Tuesday and they bowed out. Hiddink always stressed that he would not contemplate his future until after his duties with Turkey were finished and he is expected to officially leave his role as their coach this week. He has already this week dismissed a link with Ajax as sporting director, but a return to Stamford Bridge in a similar capacity has also been mooted. "I've not made up my mind about the future yet," Hiddink said. "I'm going to take some time off and then we will see what happens, but I had a wonderful time in England. "It was great at Chelsea, a terrific time, but that doesn't mean I am ready to start tomorrow. I need some time to reflect. "I'm not ready to retire, I like to be involved with a team on a daily basis, but maybe I am ready to step out of the limelight a little bit, away from the cameras. "Hopefully I will still be involved but perhaps it will be as an adviser or a consultant."
