Chelsea star Florent Malouda hopes Guus Hiddink will make a glorious return to Stamford Bridge, as the Dutchman emerges as favourite to take on the high pressure position.

While Harry Redknapp was favoured by betting agencies at the beginning of the weekend to be Carlo Ancelotti's successor, Hiddink is now 5/4 odds to become the next Chelsea manager, according to William Hill.

And Malouda says that if Hiddink does indeed head to Chelsea, the squad will be very happy with the board’s choice.

"I have a lot of respect for him," Malouda told Sky Sports News.


"When he came we were in a difficult situation in terms of results.

"He brought back confidence I think. He improved our game and led us in the Champions League and FA Cup.

"He put the club back on the right way. It was short term. It was really quick, but it was really intense.”

While speculation has been rife over who the next Chelsea manager will be, with Abramovich under pressure to appoint someone before the summer transfer period opens, Malouda says that keeping a cool head and taking time to choose the right man for the job is of the upmost importance.

"You have to take your time to make the right choices and that is what the Board is doing,” Malouda said.

"I think we have a strong squad and when you want to add ingredients to the squad you have to take your time."
