With his final words for Chelsea, Hiddink insisted his belief that the Club will be back to its brilliant best and reach the heights where it truly belongs. The outgoing interim boss asserted, Chelsea will fight for silverware and finishing in the top four spots will be something that they will definitely achieve next season.
“I have full confidence they will go up to where they belong and that is fighting for silverware and being at least in fourth, third, second or first position”, said Hiddink.
However, Hiddink believes that the road to regain the glory won’t be easy for Chelsea, as other clubs, especially the ones which are not regarded as big-guns, have the finance to attract quality players and challenge for the title.
Hiddink highlighted the performances of Leicester City, Spurs and West Ham United this season, who, in-turn create a motivation to challenge for the Title for other teams as well.
“It won’t be easy. This season we are all aware what other clubs can do as well. We have seen Leicester and Tottenham and also West Ham doing well. Other clubs are knocking on the door and having more finances, and maybe with some smart recruiting, I don’t think it’s now a done deal that the four established clubs from the past are the four established clubs for the future,” said the Dutchman.
