Russia head coach Hiddink was announced as Luiz Felipe Scolari’s successor in West London last week and he is currently preparing his charges for his first game in charge at Aston Villa on Saturday.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich made the move for Russia coach Hiddink, who would combine the job at Stamford Bridge with his role with the Russian national side, following the club’s decision to sack Luiz Felipe Scolari on Monday.

Hiddink told Radio 538 in Holland: “Abramovich does so much for Russian football that I wanted to do something back. One of these days I will go to London. I expect to be there on the field next week.”

Hiddink has given little thought to staying beyond the end of the current campaign.

He said: “There are two scenarios: it goes bad and they say ‘go back east’ or it goes well, but I’m not thinking that far ahead.”

Hiddink is determined to lead Russia into the 2010 World Cup finals in South Africa.

They have just two qualifiers between now and the end of the English season – against Azerbaijan at home at the end of March and Liechtenstein away on April 1, and neither will clash with a Chelsea fixture.
