Guus Hiddink press conference ahead of Swansea game away:
CONTE – “It’s joy for the club when you look at his records, he made a good spell at Juventus, wining the title in Italy.
“Chelsea is always a big job, regardless the issues Chelsea had this year, you always have the pleasure to manage a club a like this.
“He was presented on Monday, he requested if he could come and meet the players and I didn’t do any obstruction on this.
“I had a short meeting with him about football, about Italy, about what we did in the past months. As I said, if they need me I am here.
“If I give him advice, I won’t do it here.”
EDEN HAZARD’S FUTURE – “It’s rather easy to answer for me on Hazard‘s future, because I am not responsible, you have to ask to people in charge. It’s not good for me to speak about the future.”
TERRY’S FUTURE – “Once more if I had something to say, I would do it directly.
INJURIES – “Terry is not available, he was on the pitch training but not available. Diego Costa, Matic and Remy are out. Nevertheless we bring some youngsters as we did last week.
“I don’t know when Remy will recover, but (his injury) it’s a groin problem.
“We’ll see who will play up front tomorrow, you will see tomorrow because we still have to train and the players themselves don’t know who will play yet.
“Cahill‘s fitness… we’ll see this afternoon, he got a little tendon injury in his hip side.
“Matic got an injury in his lower leg, a severe contusion. I think he might be available next weekend.
LAST 7 GAMES – “We know the club is not in the place it deserves to be, we will do everything to get a place to play in Europa League.“
EMENALO’S FUTURE – “I don’t have any comment about that, we’ll see the future and the future plans you have to ask to people that will be here in the future.”
CHELSEA’s RUN under HIM – “We were very happy to get out of relegation zone in a fast period, like six weeks, and we got in a safe zone, but overall we are not in a zone standing for Chelsea’s standards. It’s much value if you see what we achieved from December, we have been one of the teams top of the table since there.
HIS FUTURE – “I’d love to be every day with the guys, especially the youngsters, the U21, for me it’s always a challenge to see where these guys can go. I will not do anything on a daily base. I am not young anymore.
DIFFERENCES with 2009 – “When I came in 2009 there was a little transition but by that time the team was formed, regarding the personality, we had Terry, Lampard, Ballack, Essien, Drogba, Cech…now it’s different, it’s not easy.
CHELSEA’s APPEAL for FUTURE PLAYERS – “It depends on the project, if you can provide the players a plan for the future there might be some attraction.
“Of course the CV of a manager can also attract the players, and Conte got a good CV.
UNBEATEAN RECORD in PL – “I don’t chase the unbeaten record in the PL. I prefer to risk young players, I risk a defeat, but I prefer them to get some experience in the Premier League. If you bring youngsters in very experienced teams, it’s better for them. I prefer this to have unbeaten record, but I like the record as well.
