The wave of a Dutch manager and Chelsea look a completely different side to that which was trundling at snail’s pace under Jose Mourinho. Guus Hiddink might be here only for a short while but he certainly has turned around Chelsea’s season and they might even end up in the top half of the league table.
The side are unbeaten under the Dutch manager in the league and even in the UEFA Champions League; they still have a decent chance of making it into the next round with their 2-1 loss away at PSG.
Hiddink seems to have brought the confidence back at the side and they look like a team that actually were champions of the league last season, well the demolition of Newcastle certainly showed that.
Hiddink might leave Chelsea at the end of the season but here are five things that he has changed at Chelsea and made them better:
- The spirit in the team is back
Chelsea looked dead and buried under Jose Mourinho, they did not look like a side that believed in each other but Guus has been able to take care of that. Sure Chelsea might not be on a great winning run but some of the players do look revitalised under the Dutch manager.
While Jose Mourinho was busy picking a fight with almost every living thing in the Premier League, Guus has done the exact opposite of that. He has brought in a calm demeanour to the side and that has brought back some of the confidence in the team. Hiddink might not win the league this season but this spirit that Chelsea have should last them for quite a while, unless someone messes around with it.
