New Delhi: 'The Goose' saw some impressive individuals on his first visit to the Blues' training ground, but no collective as such.

Guus Hiddink was announced as Chelsea's interim manager this week, and on Wednesday he attended his first training session since arriving at his new club.

The Dutchman took plenty of positives from his orientation day at Cobham, but he also identified the need to unify the 'team' he has inherited from Luiz Felipe Scolari.

NEW CHALLENGE: Hiddink identified the need to unify the 'team' he has inherited from Scolari.

"They are very committed, I have seen them training but sometimes you can have a little bit of a different approach to get even more efficiency out of the players," Hiddink told Chelsea TV last night.

"That's what I'm aiming for and if you can add those individuals together and make a team, then everyone can bring a little bit more.

"I don't like to give anyone much time, not me and not the players. It is too easy to talk commitment because everyone has an obligation to be committed, but in the tactical and the strategic approach during the game we might gain some profit."
