Chelsea news – Hiddink and Hughes lined-up, Bolton make Sturridge move, Torres blames injuries

Hiddink and Hughes lined-up.

Guus Hiddink and Mark Hughes are being lined up by Roman Abramovich as part of a managerial dream team, according to the Mail Online.

The Russian believes the partnership can bring European glory to Stamford Bridge, with it also breaking Barcelona’s dominance.

The move would see Hiddink and Hughes appointed as director of football and first-team coach respectively, and the former believes Man Utd can be humbled next season.

“All teams can be beaten and no way is this going to be a one-horse race. We all saw last season’s top five or six shift and shuffle. United finished on top but it doesn’t mean it has to be like that next season. It will be very open.”

Bolton make Sturridge move.

Bolton will make a fresh approach for Chelsea’s Daniel Sturridge following the young striker’s successful loan period at the Reebok, the Mail Online report.

Sturridge scored eight goals in 12 games during his time at Bolton and manager Owen Coyle is desperate to sign him in another loan deal.

“I feel with Daniel that another period at Bolton will take him on to the next level and then he will be a starter for Chelsea. Right now he is behind Drogba, Torres, Malouda, Anelka and Kalou.” He added.

“Like all our loan players, we give them a platform and belief they can play in the best league in the world. Daniel set the place alight during his time here – and we’d love him back to help with his development next season.”

Torres blames injuries.

Fernando Torres blames injuries for disrupting his Chelsea induction and believes they are to blame for his poor form, ESPN Star report.

Torres came off the bench for Spain to score his sides fourth and final goal against the USA on Saturday, and speaking after the game he said it was a difficult season, but he felt his best form was starting to return.

“It has been a tough year for me. I have only played twice for the national team in recent times. The injuries I have had prevented me from being in good shape,” he continued.

“Now I will think of the Venezuela game on Tuesday and then afterwards I will go on my holidays and I hope that next season will be different.”
