Six and a half years after he left Chelsea having led them to FA Cup victory, Guus Hiddink is returning to Stamford Bridge.
In 2009, Hiddink took charge of the club after Luiz Felipe Scolari was sacked.
Now, the Dutchman returns, until the end of the season, following the sacking of Jose Mourinho.
Hiddink is confident that Chelsea's season - which has seen them lose nine games so far - can be recovered.
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.
After leaving Chelsea, the 69-year-old went on to manage Turkey and the Netherlands along with Anzhi Makhachkala.
Earlier today, Jose Mourinho released a statement at odds with what Chelsea's had claimed Thursday. Chelsea said that Mourinho had departed via mutual consent, the 52-year-old declared that he was sacked.
