Hiddink asks Chelsea to bring back fired Wilkins

Guus Hiddink wants Roman Abramovich to swallow his pride and let sacked Ray Wilkins RETURN to Chelsea.

Wilkins' shock axing in October sparked the winter slump that culminated in Carlo Ancelotti's forced departure last month.

The former England skipper fell out with Abramovich and chief executive Ron Gourlay in a row over Ancelotti's tactical approach.

It saw Wilkins hauled out of touchline duties during a reserve game to be handed his marching orders and led to a protracted cash wrangle until a compensation deal was agreed.

The decision seemed to spell the final end of Wilkins' near-30 year relationship with the Blues.

But Hiddink, set to be confirmed later this week as Ancelotti's successor, is keen to have a familiar backroom face around him.

Hiddink will ask Abramovich to sanction a formal approach to Wilkins to come back to the club.

The Dutchman knows Wilkins would be an immensely popular figure among the majority of the dressing room and make his task easier.

It is uncertain at this stage whether Wilkins would want to return, just eight months after being shown the door.

But the fact that Hiddink is trying to resurrect the managerial team that helped deliver the FA Cup during his four-month spell at the Chelsea helm suggests he wants to hit the ground running.

:laugh2: Seen that clip a few times now and it's still funny. As for the Wilkins thing, hasn't Ray publicly said that he wouldn't go back to Chelsea under any circumstances? Sure I heard him say that during one of his pundit appearances on SkySports
