Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink believes his side have nothing to play for following a disastrous season.
The Dutch manager replaced Jose Mourinho as manager of the club after the Portuguese was sacked from the club in December.
Hiddink however failed to lead the Blues to any silverware after his side crushed out of the Champions League and FA Cup in quick succession.
He maintains the feeling at the club is “empty” as his players have nothing to play for till season’s end.
“After the defeats suffered in the FA Cup and Champions League, then there’s a little bit of emptiness. You are empty – there is no silverware to go for,” Hiddink told reporters.
“We knew it would be a difficult season, and we managed to get away from the relegation zone, but at the end you hope to get silverware as the next step… now, for the rest of the season it is important to show what they can do – for themselves, as an obligation for the club, and also beneficial for Chelsea”
