Hiddink : Gerrard fully Deserved it

Guus Hiddink disagrees with John Terry’s choice of Player of the Year, insisting Steven Gerrard was the worthy winner.

Terry claimed Frank Lampard deserved to beat his England colleague to the Football Writers award, but Hiddink has a very different viewpoint.

The temporary Chelsea manager has had time to work closely with Lampard, but he admits nobody can deny Gerrard his success.

"Gerrard deserved it fully, what he was nominated for," said Hiddink.

"He had a tremendous season, not just in his efficiency on the pitch, but also in his appearance as a professional player.

"He is very warm-hearted towards his club. You could say the same for Frank Lampard. He is well respected all over England."

Hiddink remains on course to leave Chelsea at the end of the season, with Carlo Ancelotti widely tipped to replace the Russia coach.

Former PSV boss Hiddink admits he has an idea of who Roman Abramovich wants to bring in, but he is keeping quiet on the Chelsea hierarchy’s plans.

"There are names, but we haven't spoken about names," revealed Hiddink. "It's up to them. It's none of my business.

"They have to go forward and there's no responsibility whatsoever on their side to inform me.

"They are doing so but I don't need to be informed every day. Generally, I know a bit what is going on. I can tell you, but I won't."
