Guus Hiddink’s agent has dismissed speculation claiming the Dutchman was going to take as manager of Chelsea.
A weekend newspaper claimed the Russia coach was being lined up to take over from Avram Grant at Stamford Bridge, but his agent, Cees van Nieuwenhuizen has dismissed the report.
“There is no chance of Guus going to Chelsea,” van Nieuwenhuizen told BBC Sport. “He wants to end his career in international management.
“He signed a new deal in March that runs up to the 2010 World Cup and always honours his contracts.”
Hiddink, who took over as Russia coach in the summer of 2006 and guided the nation to Euro 2008, has been frequently linked with Chelsea.
Van Nieuwenhuizen said: “I don’t know where these stories about Guus come from and I want to put an end to them once and for all.
“It isn’t about money for Guus. It’s about him having signed a contract and wanting to get on with his job with Russia.”
