Guus Hiddink Stakes Claim In Title Race.

Guus Hiddink is joining in the fun. The rhetoricals of football managers in EPL had always been controversial (funny at times) and Hiddink is picking up the British culture very fast. Just 2 months in the Chelsea managerial's seat, he is talking as if he had tons of EPL managerial experiences under his belt.

He said: "It's clear that the tension has come back into the league and that's a boost for us.

"When you are in the driver's seat and someone else is coming up in your mirrors, you can get a little bit nervous. Rafa and Sir Alex are very experienced, but I will try to chase them."

Hiddink is a manager with a brilliant management resume. I hope he achieves success and stay longer than 1 season in the hot seat. We do feel that Chelsea's best years are behind them and there needs to be an overhaul of the players to be genuine title contenders again.
