Former Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink says he has a good relationship with owner Roman Abramovich, despite claiming he's not interested in a return to Stamford Bridge.

The Dutch boss last week left his post as manager of the Turkish national team, and hinted a possible return to west-London.

Hiddink won the FA Cup in 2009 during his short spell in charge and says he's in regular contact with Chelsea owner Abramovich.

"The relationship (with Abramovich) was, has been, and will be good - very good," he said.

"When I go to London I am always welcome, or in Cobham, or at the stadium.

"We don't speak every week, but every now and then there is contact and I feel very welcome always. We'll see what the future will bring.

"I will take my time to settle down and reflect on what to do, but I feel I have enough energy to go on."

With the pressure building on Andre Villas-Boas, talk is rife the Russian owner is already at the end of his tether with the manager, following Chelsea's defeat to Liverpool.

However, Chelsea, who payed in excess of £13 million for Villas-Boas from Porto, are moor likely to employ Hiddink as part of the 24-year-old's back room staff.
