Chelsea’s players have been warned to brace themselves for a “cauldron of hate” at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues ‘ squad have been blamed by some for Jose Mourinho’s sacking , with even their former boss accusing them of betrayal.
Guus Hiddink is expected to be in Roman Abramovich’s private box to watch the match against Sunderland on Saturday before of accepting the role of manager until the end of the season for the second time.
But what he witnesses may not be pretty.
David Johnstone, spokesman for Chelsea fanzine cfcuk said. “I think it will be a cauldron of hate.
Tim Rolls, chairman of the Chelsea Supporters’ Trust, said: “My personal view, and the sense I am getting from social media, is there will be chants for the manager before the game and at the start.
“After that it will depend on how the match goes.
“If Chelsea play well, I suspect it will die down.”
Hiddink spent Friday negotiating the finer details of his return to the club that he steered to FA Cup success last time he stepped in as emergency replacement in 2009.
The Dutchman — sacked by Holland in June after a disastrous start to their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign, from which they failed to recover — said: “I want to get some good insight before I make my decision.
“I want as much information as possible. Chelsea are in a bad situation and there are reasons for that.
“Whether or not I’m visiting their next match depends on my first conversation. Then I’ll decide if I should stay in London longer.
“I won’t be on the bench against Sunderland. I will leave that to the interim coaches.
“I want to have a very good insight into how all it got into this way.”
