`”My heart is now around 100 beats per minute,” says Chelsea’s HiddinkApril 15th, 2009 - 5:31 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr.15 (ANI): Chelsea coach Guus Hiddink said after Chelsea’s four all draw Liverpool that his heart “is now around 100 beats per minute because the game’s been finished for 15 minutes. But at the time of the game it was up to 160 or 180.”
“I have had some dramatic matches, but this was one of those games where everyone has made a lot of errors. That’s why it was so attractive, going from one end to the other. One time you think you’re down, next you react,” The Sun quoted Hiddink, as saying.Liverpool took a 2-0 lead on an astonishing night and was just a goal away from pulling off a spectacular comeback.
But, after the goals continued to fly in at both ends, Blues stand-in skipper Frank Lampard’s 89th-minute strike finally settled a pulsating match.
Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez said: “We are disappointed because we scored four goals away from home - but this game was unbelievable. I’m really proud of the players and fans because they were pushing the team all the time. I thought we played a really good game. We saw character, quality and we have to be really proud. The players did a fantastic job. We were on top of them from the beginning.”Hiddink chilled out with a glass of wine as he soaked up the full impact of a momentous night. (ANI)
