Hiddink received offer in China


Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink revealed on Friday that he had been approached to manage in the Chinese Super League.

Hiddink returned to Stamford Bridge for his second spell as Chelsea caretaker in December after Jose Mourinho was fired, but the veteran Dutch coach was also offered the chance of taking a job with a team in the cash-rich Chinese league.

“I had some possibilities to go there in the recent past,” Hiddink told reporters without expanding any further.

Jiangsu Suning are managed by former Chelsea defender Dan Petrescu, while Sven Goran Eriksson and Luiz Felipe Scolari are also bosses in China.
