Hiddink Has Options Open After Russia Crash Out

Mick Bates by Mick Bates / 24 November 2009, 11:29

Guus Hiddink has a lot of thinking to do over the next few months as he decides what his next career move is after Russia failed to qualify for the 2010 World cup following defeat to Slovenia in what was the upset of the Play-Offs. Russia were expected to qualify with some ease according to most pundits and the bookies but after conceding a last minute goal at home and then losing the second leg, the Russians went out on away goals to the shock of the boss. Hiddink, who has a contract with the Russian FA until July 2010, is now likely to leave his job with the National team as he looks to get back into club management. Of course Hiddink had a successful spell at Chelsea last season winning the FA Cup which may well have once again whet his appetite for the domestic game, in particularly in the Premier League.

Hiddink has a formidable CV which includes managing both national and club teams such as South Korea, Australia, Real Madrid and PSV amongst others. He famously led the South Korean's all the way to the World Cup Semi-Finals in 2002 which is considered one of his greatest achievements. Victor Chandler have opened up a What Next for Guus Hiddink Market in reaction to Russia's failure and the list reads like a who's who of world football as it contains some of the biggest club names in. Hiddink is favourite to head to Real Madrid next for a second spell in the Spanish Capital accoridng to Victor Chandler, where Real President, Florentino Perez, is already rumoured to be running out of patience with current Galaticos boss Manuel Pellegrini and Hiddink may appear as the read made replacement to takeover at the Bernabeu.

However, The Sack Race are confident in the rumour that the Dutchman is eager to come back to England after his time at Chelsea last season. Both Liverpool and Man City could well be in the market for an experienced tactician like Hiddink and with Rafa Benitez and Mark Hughes both under big pressure currently, both need to start producing results. There are also rumours surfacing that Hiddink could well head back to Stamford Bridge to work above Carlo Ancelotti.
