Guus Hiddink press conference ahead of Liverpool away game in Premier League:
TERRY – “He’s been training the recent days, of course when you come on the pitch after being sent off it’s not the best face, not being in the last game, in the last two games is a blow for him
“When I make a judgement on his playing, I say he’s able to play, to continue.
“The season was not a great season, it’s always good to have the key players playing, I think with Leicester it should be a party game, not just for them but also to say goodbye to this season.”
FUTURE SQUAD – “I am not going to give judgement about the players, they [next technical staff] are clever enough to be able to make their own judgement.”
NO EUROPE – “To not be in Europe for next season of course is a disaster, a football disaster, because Chelsea must be always in the top, so regarding that, yes, Chelsea should be there.”
MISSED TARGETS – “My first job was to get them out of the relegation zone asap, because you never know what can happen in the English league. There was this negative scenario, we did it fast, our other target were to go to FA cup finals and to progress in the Champions League, but this was not possible.
LIVERPOOL – “Everyone wants to be at the top next season, they have a very good skillful team, it’s nice to see them, they are an energetic team, with huge history.”
HIS FUTURE – “I’m going to France to watch the EURO and do some TV work, of course I will be on to help clubs or players, but not in the spotlight, this week we had a meeting with a company that advice young players, to develop, and I am an adviser for them, I like this very much.”
TERRY/FANS – “I don’t know the state of mind of the fans, once you have clear ideas of your future, then you can be transparent.
“That is the strategy of the club [to not claim officially if a contract will be extended before the end of the season] of course John[Terry] has been here for 18 years and he deserves a huge goodbye, that is never a goodbye, because whatever happens being away, usually they come back to help the club, but this is just my personal opinion, they can be very useful.”
TERRY FUTURE COACH – “I think the other day we were seating next to each other before the game in Bournemouth, and he felt good, many of my past players in that period on their career asked themselves what do to next, he’s always been a leader, he can make this step and he has to start to make a foundation to be a manager. You can use your experience to become a manager.”
