Guus Hiddink lands Netherlands hot seat after World Cup

Guus HiddinkGuus Hiddink will take charge of Netherlands for a second spell after Louis Can Gaal steps down after the 2014 World Cup. The former Chelsea boss will be assisted by Ruud van Nistelrooy and Danny Blind, who will succeed the 67-year-old after the 2016 European Championships.

Hiddink, who has most recently been working at PSV with Phillip Cocu, previously managed his homeland between 1994 and 1998. During his time at the helm he guided Holland through to the 1998 World Cup semi-finals, where they lost to Brazil on penalties. Hiddink has also enjoyed success on the international scene with South Korea, who he impressively led to the last-four of the 2002 World Cup. Meanwhile his exceptional CV also include stints in charge of the national sides of Russia, Turkey and Australia, with whom he steered through to the World Cup for the first time in 32 years.

Hiddink will be expected to guide Holland through qualifying through to Euro 2016 in France. They have been drawn in Group A alongside Czech Republic, Turkey, Latvia, Iceland and Kazakhstan. Meanwhile Holland head to Brazil this summer priced at 33/1 with Bet Victor to win the World Cup for the first time in their history. The Dutch have been placed in a daunting Group C consisting of defending champions Spain, a dangerous Chile side, and underdogs Australia.
