HIDDINK HAPPY TO GO THE EXTRA MILE.
Byline: Peter White
GUUS HIDDINK admits he does not mind doing all the hard work at Chelsea to make it easy for his successor.
Hiddink saw his side face one of their sternest tests since he began his second spell before recovering to beat Southampton at St Mary's. He was delighted with Chelsea's response after they gifted Saints the lead through Shane Long.
Hiddink said: "I am not thinking I am doing the hard work and the next manager can come in, sit in this chair and smoke a cigar.
"I love working with these guys, and everyone knows my affection for the club.
"If they continue playing at this level I will be proud."
Branislav Ivanovic, who scored the late winner following a leveller by Cesc Fabregas, said: "It was a very difficult game, our hardest away this season.
"But we controlled the game and deserved the big three points."
