Southampton manager, Ronald Koeman has sensationally thrown his name into the hat to become the next Chelsea manager.
The Dutchman who has been at St Marys for 18 months revealed in his press conference that he had asked Guus Hiddink to put in a good word for him at Stamford Bridge, regarding the vacancy at the end of the season.
If Guus puts a good word in for me, that would be a big influence.
It is certainly something that I always have at the back of my mind.
I always want to achieve the highest possible level. That has happened in Holland and that’s what I’d really like to achieve abroad.
Koeman is no stranger stranger to winning titles, managing Ajax, Feyenoord, AZ and PSV Eindhoven in his native Netherlands, as well as Valencia and Benfica in Spain and Portugal respectively.
Koeman’s immediate goal however will be to emmulate last seasons victory over Manchester United in todays fixture at Old Trafford.
