Speaking during an interview ahead of Sunday’s Manchester City clash, the Dutchman said that ‘the best comes out of a player when he plays with joy’.

“Players, even if they are high-profile, well-paid professionals as they are at this club, deep down they must play with joy,” the manager said on Chelsea’s website.

Hiddink pointed out that Joy is not always laughing but “enjoying being a professional, enjoying training and enjoying doing your job”.

“When you feel that naturally, the performance is unconditional,” he said while he described the blues” FA Cup tie with City as an ‘early final’.

Meanwhile, Manchester City boss, Manuel Pellegrini, had resolved to rest several senior players in the team, so that youngsters such as Bersant Celina and Manu Garcia could feature.

He hinted that Bacary Sagna was back in training and might return from a knee problem.
