Chelsea Football Club which has appointed Guus Hiddink as Coach to replace sacked Coach Jose Mourinho beat Sunderland 3-1 Saturday.
Hiddink will serve as first-team manager until the end of the season.
According to a statement by the club on Wednesday, the owner and the Board of Chelsea FC welcomed back a coach with a wealth of top-level experience and success, including his previous spell with the club in 2009 when it lifted the FA Cup.
The statement added: “Mr Abramovich and the Board believe that Guus has what it takes to get the best out of our talented squad.”
Guus was quoted in the statement as saying: “I am excited to return to Stamford Bridge. Chelsea is one of the biggest clubs in the world but is not where it should be at the moment. However, I am sure we can all turn this season around.
“I am looking forward to working with the players and staff at this great club and especially renewing my wonderful relationship with the Chelsea fans.”
The Dutchman arrived at Stamford Bridge for Saturday’s match but met with players and handlers of the team in the dressing room after the march.
Steve Holland was in control of team matters for the game.
