Chelsea’s Hiddink plans to celebrate with trophy in one hand, champagne in the otherApril 19th, 2009 - 12:57 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr.19 (ANI): Chelsea coach Guus Hiddink is planning out a dream farewell that includes the FA Cup trophy in one hand and champagne in the other.
After the Blues overpowered Arsenal 2-1 to enter the FA Cup final, the Dutchman will walk away from Stamford Bridge on May 31, the day after the 128th showpiece showdown against either Manchester United or Everton.
He’s got a vision of himself leaving the Venue of Legends with the cup in one hand and a bottle of champagne in the other.
News of the World quoted Hiddink as saying: “It is the perfect scenario for me. It could be a beautiful day, win the cup, get a nice bottle of champagne and then on May 31 say, not goodbye because I will be back one day, but farewell for now.”
But it could be even better with the final coming just three days after the Champions League final in Rome and a week after the finale of the Premier League.
Amid all this clamour surrounding a United quintuple, Chelsea are on course for a remarkable treble. So it could be quite a week for Hiddink.
“Yes a whole load of champagnes,” he chuckled. (ANI)
