Hiddink’s name is back in the frame after Chelsea’s worst start under Roman Abramovich.
Asked if he needed the help of a more experienced man alongside him, 34-year-old Villas-Boas replied: “In what sense?”
When the Dutchman’s name was mentioned, he said: “I don’t agree with that.
“I solve problems with my own group of people and my players and it has been like that through my career.
“I hold on to my self-belief and my belief in my players — and I still believe in what I do.”
Chelsea were today charged over the behaviour of their players during their west London derby defeat at QPR.
The Football Association also confirmed they had written to Blues manager Andre Villas-Boas asking for an explanation of his post-match comments about referee Chris Foy and his assistants.
Chelsea had loads of yellow cards and two red cards in a single game. Drogba and Bosingwa had to take the long walk to the tunnel after a straight red. AVB later commented about the referee and said he was “Card Happy”.
Rumor also has it that John Terry was racist towards Anton Ferdinand but Terry has denied it.
Torres said he wanted to be a goalkeeper rather than a striker but his mom didn’t allow him to play that position after he had an accident and lost a tooth while playing in goal.
He says he still enjoys playing between the sticks and in training, he sometimes tries to stop a shot or two.
Martin Jol has fined one of his Fulham players £5oo for missing a penalty.
But the Craven Cottage boss is now facing a dressing-room backlash.
Several senior stars are furious after Jol rapped rookie Pajtim Kasami.
The 19 year old striker hit the bar from the spot and lost Fulham the match 4-3 against Chelsea.
