Andre Villas-Boas has moved to quash speculation that former Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink is about to take his job. The Dutchman has left his position as Turkey coach after he failed to secure a spot in the Euro 2012 finals leading to inevitable speculation that the veteran could be set for a Stamford Bridge reurn.

“Guus had a very important period at the club and made the necessary changes first to take this club to another semi-final, plus an FA Cup and a good period of only one defeat in 15 games,” said Villas-Boas.
“But it was six months at the club. It does not mean that he can always be as successful as that in a club of this dimension of tremendous expectations.
“Guus is one of the top managers in the world, a manager that is always available when a top team arises but at the moment this is not a vacancy, so it is not a vacancy to be taken, but when it is a vacancy I am sure he will be one of the top candidates.”

There is however some talk of a possible consultant role for Hiddink at the West London club whom he managed for four months in 2009, leading them to an FA Cup success during a spell that resulted in 15 wins and just one defeat from 21 matches.
