Hiddink will leave in the summer

Interim manager Guus Hiddink will not stay at Chelsea beyond the end of the season.

Hiddink returned to Stamford Bridge following Jose Mourinho's departure last month and has steadied the ship somewhat by guiding them to a four-game unbeaten run.

The Blues will make a permanent appointment in the summer but there could be calls for Hiddink to stay if the club wins either the FA Cup or the Champions League. However, the Dutchman insists his tenure will be brief.

"I've put two dates in my mind which is the 25th and 28th May and then it's finished, I can then go home on the 29th," Hiddink said.

"Those dates are the FA Cup Final (it's actually on 21st) and Champions League Final. It means that after that it's over. We made it very clear at the end of this I will stop."

Mourinho was sacked following a poor start to the season which saw the Blues lose nine of their first 16 Premier League games.

They remain in the bottom half of the table, 11 points adrift of a top four place, and Hiddink has warned his players they have a lot of work to do to maintain their four-game unbeaten run.

"We are unbeaten in four games in a row, which was not been done in the past but it should be standard for a club like Chelsea," he told reporters ahead of the FA Cup third round tie against Scunthorpe.

"I'm happy of course with the restarting a bit of the team, but for me the next step is very important. We have to follow up, which means in the upcoming games we have to show what we're capable of."
