Chelsea coach Guus Hiddink has hinted that midfielder Deco will be out for the rest of the season after suffering a recurrence of a hamstring problem in the 1-0 win over Manchester City.

Deco has been troubled by the injury for the last two months and was substituted in the first-half against City.

"He was fit and worked hard, but after 20 or 25 minutes he had this problem again, so he will be out again for a while," said Hiddink. "I think Deco will not be recovered very shortly. He'll have to be very fit to come back this season. I have my doubts to be honest, but let's see what happens."
