Guus Hiddink is happy to be back at Chelsea.

New Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink told the press that he is glad to be back to Stamford Bridge.

Hiddink had a short spell with Chelsea back in 2009, with the Blues winning the F.A. Cup under his reign.

‘I shouldn’t be here halfway through the season because it means things aren’t going as well as foreseen at the beginning of the season, but I’m glad to be back,’ said Hiddink.

‘It was a few years ago I was here in a similar situation and I tried to help out when I was asked to do so. I have a lot of love for the club and to work with the players is always a pleasure.

‘If you look back to last season where there was this huge success in winning the title, you go into the next season setting targets and aims. The aims are to win the Premier League again, which isn’t easy, and the other target is to go far in the Champions League and FA Cup.

‘Sometimes after a championship you might relax a bit as a team and then you get a wake-up call in September, but the situation is that we were down to one point away from the relegation zone last week, which was frightening for everyone inside the club. But that’s not to say I’m here and tomorrow the problem is solved.’
