Hiddink: Chelsea Must Play For Pride
Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink has stated that the players should now play for pride, since silverware is out of reach.
The Blues, who have experienced a torrid season, were knocked out of the FA Cup by Everton following their Champions League exit against Paris Saint-Germain.
This leaves the London outfit without any hope of claiming some silverware this campaign, but Hiddink believes the players should still be motivated to play well nonetheless.
"Of course they like to win and most of them are used to winning, but everyone knows the season of Chelsea which was until December very, very bad," he said.
"It's difficult to achieve the Champions League [qualification] and maintain two roads to success which were the Champions League and the FA Cup.
"They are gone now and that's a pity, but when you play in a big club like Chelsea -- and we will emphasise this to the players in the upcoming time -- you must also play with responsibility and pride even if the season is as it is now."
