[article_adwert]  The 69 year old was speaking at a pre-match press conference on Friday when he revealed the Champions League and FA Cup final dates will determine when he will leave.

He told reporters: "I've put two dates in my mind, which is May 21 and 28, and then it's finished. Then I can go home on the 29.

"Those dates are FA Cup (final) and Champions League (final). We made it very clear that at the end of this, then I will stop."

Hiddink also downplayed a confrontation between Diego Costa and Oscar in training in which both players came to blows.  He said he was happy they fought as they showed emotions and a spirit to fight for the Chelsea shirt.

He said: "It was a pity that our photographer yesterday had a day off because he could have shot beautiful pictures from the two, let's say, bulls who were chesting a bit after a charge from behind from the smaller bull, which was Oscar," said Hiddink, whose side host third-tier Scunthorpe United in the FA Cup third round on Sunday.

"He (Costa) took a charge from behind and it was overdone, especially when you know Oscar. He is not the biggest tackler of the team and he got Diego.

"And of course, then they stumbled over the ground, stood up as a normal reaction and then chested a bit without any further seriousness or threat of punching or whatever. It was more the threat of two bulls.

"After that, Oscar apologised in front of the group. He wanted to speak. I said, 'Take the podium.' He apologised for his over-reacting and then they looked at each other and they started laughing. I think it's OK.

"Jokes were made already afterwards, so it's normal. We are used to playing on a high intensity. It happens, so it's solved."



Hiddink is in his second spell at Chelsea after managing the club in 2009 when he won the FA Cup and got to the final of the UEFA Champions League.

He was announced as the replacement of Jose Mourinho who was sacked late last year due to poor results.
