Australian FA announce Guus Hiddink is returning to Chelsea before deleting the post

It looks as though the Socceroos have jumped the gun in confirming that Chelsea will replace Jose Mourinho with Guus Hiddink.
Mourinho was fired by the Premier League champions on Thursday after a dreadful start to the 2015-16 season which has already ruined their chances of retaining the league title, with the dressing room seemingly unwilling to perform any longer under the decorated Portuguese.
Guus Hiddink, who has taken short-care charge of the Blues before, was immediately installed as the favourite to replace Mourinho – at least until the summer, when big names such as Pep Guardiola are expected to become available.
Hiddink led Australia to the 2006 World Cup in Germany, and won an FA Cup at Chelsea in 2009 after replacing Luiz Felipe Scolari.
Overnight, the Australian FA’s national team Twitter account, @Socceroos, seemingly confirmed the news – only to delete the tweet shortly after.
