HIDDINK: PRES­SURE WILL BE ON CONTE TO BRING SUC­CESS

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

In­com­ing head coach An­to­nio Conte will be ex­pected to in­spire a ti­tle chal­lenge from Chelsea next sea­son de­spite re­cent trou­bles, says care­taker boss Guus Hiddink. The Dutch­man, in his sec­ond care­taker spell at Stam­ford Bridge, re­stored sta­bil­ity, but he still has just one home win in the Premier League ahead of to­day’s match with Tot­ten­ham. And Conte must se­cure an im­me­di­ate about turn in for­tunes, ac­cord­ing to Hiddink. “The pres­sure is on,” said Hiddink. “We have to see Chelsea next year again fight­ing for the ti­tle and be­ing on top. There are many teams fight­ing for the ti­tle. Five, six clubs must al­ways ex­press their de­sire for the ti­tle, in­clud­ing Chelsea.”
