The national football team of Australia has congratulated Guus Hiddink on his appointment as the new manager of Chelsea.
Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho has been sacked barely seven months after he helped the London club win the English Premier League.
After their ninth defeat in the Premier League Chelsea’s manager, Jose Mourinho, has admitted that he feels betrayed by his players.
Mateja Kezman, the former Chelsea striker, stated that the coach has revealed to him he would take over, but the Socceroos website took the speculation to a new level after publishing their own announcement and sharing their congratulations on Twitter.

The 69-year-old will have the unenviable task of lifting the Premier League champions, currently only a single point above the relegation zone, back up the table.
The source says that Hiddink has already had one stint in charge of the Blues, having taken over at Stamford Bridge after Brazilian coach Luiz Felipe Scolari was sacked in 2009.
Meanwhile, Goal.com reports that Hiddink, or someone who looks remarkably like the 69-year-old, was pictured arriving in London ahead of Saturday’s clash against Sunderland.
