Chelsea warned over 'illegal approach' for Guus Hiddink

The Turkish FA are refusing to play ball over Chelsea's attempt to make Guus Hiddink their next manager.

Hiddink, who managed Chelsea for three months back in 2009, remains the favourite to take over from the sacked Carlo Ancelotti, but head of the Turkish FA Mahmut Ozgener are monitoring the situation closely and have warned Chelsea against making an illegal approach for their national team coach.

Ozgener told Turkish newspaper Hurriyet: 'Chelsea has a past record for signing players who are under contract, and if the same thing happens, we will make a file of the payments we made to Hiddink and we will go to Fifa.

'After the Belgium game I went to the dressing room and asked Hiddink what he will do. He replied: 'I will go to Turkey's B team match and then go to South Korea for a charity match.' But after that I learnt he said different things to the players. He should have told me what he told the players.

'You cannot come to Turkey and then leave when you want.'
