      Australia national team congratulate Hiddink on Chelsea appointment

      The new manager of the Blues appears to have been revealed, though not in the way most would have imagined, as the Dutchman's old team wished him luck at Stamford Bridge.

      Australia's national football team website has congratulated former coach Guus Hiddink on his appointment as Jose Mourinho's successor at Chelsea, though no official confirmation has yet been released by the Premier League club.Mourinho was sacked by the Blues on Thursday after a string of poor results, bad press and in-house bust-ups, leaving fans speculating as to who would take over.

      Former Chelsea striker Mateja Kezman claimed that the Dutchman had revealed tohim he would take over, but the Socceroos website took the speculation to a new level after publishing their own announcement and sharing their congratulations on Twitter.Should Hiddink be appointed, the 69-year-old will have unenviable task of lifting the Premier League champions – currently only a single point above the relegation zone – back up the table.

      As things stand, however, neither Chelsea nor the coach have commented since Mourinho's dismissal on Thursday.Hiddink has already had one stint in charge of the Blues, having taken over at Stamford Bridge after Brazilian coach Luiz Felipe Scolari was sacked in 2009; he enjoyed a 73 per cent win rate and lifted the FA Cup.

      That's an interestingly risky choice considering Hiddink's woeful performance in his last job as Netherland's boss.

      Well, Chelsea are currently stripped of quality choice. Klopp would have been the outright favourite, but that isn't happening again. Guardiola and Simeone just seem too far-fetched.
