Guus Hiddink has revealed he will be staying on at Chelsea in an advisory role.

The Dutchman took over from Jose Mourinho this season but will move aside for Antonio Conte in the summer.

Hiddink will be concentrating on bringing youngsters through to the first team and told Netherland's Fox Sports that he sees a role for former players like Didier Drogba and Petr Cech at the club when they end their playing careers.

"Last week I spoke to Drogba. I’ve spoken to Peter Cech. These are what they call 'legends' in England. Those guys have had such an impact at this club. This club is old, but have only been at the top level for 10, 15 years. Those older guys, with a good heart, feel a lot of the club. They can mean a lot. If they have said goodbye to football, and they’ve transitioned well, one of them would like to do the commercial side of things, another might want to become assistant-manager, another might want to do something in scouting... you could really use those guys."
