Guus Hiddink insists it is "very unlikely" he will manage Chelsea in the near future because club owner Roman Abramovich wants the Dutchman to concentrate on improving the fortunes of the Russian national team.

The Dutchman has been linked with the Blues job, especially since the departure of Jose Mourinho, but he insists he is looking to extend his contract as Russia coach - with Abramovich´s blessing.

He told The Times: "We have a project to reshape Russian football by 2014, with the 2010 World Cup as the first phase. Given Abramovich´s long-term commitment and vision, it seems very unlikely that he would try to disrupt that process."
