Hiddink back at Chelsea

Posted on by

first_imgLONDON (AP): Guus Hiddink returned to Chelsea for a second spell as manager yesterday, hired until the end of the season with the tough task of turning around the struggling Premier League champions following Jose Mourinho’s firing. As Chelsea beat Sunderland 3-1 under the temporary command of Steve Holland, Hiddink watched from the stands at Stamford Bridge with owner Roman Abramovich and former striker Didier Drogba, who has been linked with a coaching role. Drogba scored in Chelsea’s 2009 FA Cup final win when Hiddink previously filled the Chelsea managerial void for around four months after the exit of Luiz Felipe Scolari. The 69-year-old Hiddink’s latest firefighting role comes with Chelsea only four points above the Premier League relegation zone following an alarming slump just seven months after sweeping to the title. “I am excited to return to Stamford Bridge. Chelsea is one of the biggest clubs in the world, but is not where it should be at the moment,” Hiddink said. “However, I am sure we can all turn this season around.” Chelsea said they viewed the Dutchman as a coach with a “wealth of top-level experience and success”. The club highlighted how fans were “singing his name following our final home game” of the 2008-09 season, but it was Mourinho’s name they were still chanting yesterday. Hiddink’s fortunes have faded since he was last at Chelsea. He quit as manager of Turkey after failing to qualify the team for the 2012 European Championship and did not win a trophy with Anzhi Makhachkala during a spell with the Russian club. He has been out of work since being fired by the Netherlands in June during the latter stages of his country’s unsuccessful attempt to qualify for Euro 2016. He had five losses, four victories and a draw during his year in charge of a team that finished third at the 2014 World Cup under Louis van Gaal, now the manager of Manchester United.last_img read more

Gardaí warn against sharing holiday photos online

Posted on by

first_imgGoing on holiday? Then don’t broadcast it to the world on social media. That’s the message issued by gardaí as summer holiday season begins.Home owners are being warned to take extra steps to protect their homes when they are away on holiday. This begins with social media. “Holiday season is upon us and often people post to social media when they are going on holidays, they check in on facebook at the departures lounge at the airport or they post holiday photos on Instagram,” said a garda spokesperson.“If you and your family are going on holidays then please do not announce it to the world. You may as well put a vacant house sign outside your house for burglars to take full advantage of.”Gardaí are asking the public to note the following home security tips when leaving on holiday:Do a thorough check of your home before you go and ensure that all doors and windows are closed fully and locked. Do not close blinds or curtains as your home will appear empty if they are closed all day and night. Set your house alarm. If you do not have a house alarm and are considering purchasing one then make sure it is monitored. This will ensure that your home will receive attention from Gardai if the need arises and it will give you peace of mind when you are on your travels. Set a light on a timer switch to go on at night time in one or two rooms in the house. Cancel any deliveries that are due and give a key to a trusted neighbour or friend and ask them to check the house and collect the post regularly. Have a car parked at your home in the driveway or at side of the house, somewhere it is visible from the road. Ensure that there is good lighting around your home especially at the rear of the property. Remove any spare keys you may have hidden outside your home. Keeping a spare key outside is never a good idea whether you are away on holidays or not. Document your most valuable items by keeping a note of serial numbers, photograph of item, guarantees and receipts. Ensure that your home insurance is active and that you have adequate contents cover. Notify your local Garda Station that you will be away and that your home will be vacant so they are aware and can patrol the area.   Gardaí warn against sharing holiday photos online was last modified: June 11th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
