Chelsea will appoint Guus Hiddink as their new manager, according to former Blues striker Mateja Kezman.

Kezman, quoted on the website of Croatian newspaper Index, said Hiddink has told him he will succeed Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge.

Kezman said, according to the report: "I do not know if it is officially confirmed, whether the club has announced it, but Guus told me earlier.

"I am convinced that with him Chelsea will recover. I would even say they are one of the favourites for the Champions League."

Kezman, who briefly played under Mourinho during the Portuguese's first spell in charge, said: "I am not surprised by (owner Roman) Abramovich's decision to (get rid of) Mourinho.

"Jose is a superb coach but the results and position in the league are catastrophic and unbecoming the reputation of a club like Chelsea.

"It is incredible that this team were champions last season and are now fighting for dear life in the Premier League.

"I think this decision is correct and Guus Hiddink is a great choice."

Hiddink had a caretaker spell in charge of Chelsea in the closing months of the 2008-09 season, helping the team win the FA Cup.
