Guus Hiddink set for Netherlands return
Guus Hiddink has confirmed that he will replace Louis van Gaal as Netherlands boss after this summer's World Cup.
Hiddink, 67, has been working as an advisor at PSV since resigning from his post as manager of Anzhi Makhachkala last July but is now ready to return to the national team hotseat he vacated 16 years ago.
During his first spell as Netherlands boss, Hiddink led the Oranje to the quarterfinals of Euro '96 and the semifinals of the 1998 World Cup -- an agonising penalty shootout defeat to Brazil denying his side a spot in the final.
"I am working with the KNVB [Dutch FA] to create a coaching team around me. We will need a few days or maybe a couple of weeks," Hiddink told NOS.
"It will be a great team. I will not be a free-wheeling coach. When I do something, I want to do it as well as I can. Otherwise I would not do it."
Hiddink is expected to draft in several former Netherlands players to his coaching team, with Ruud van Nistelrooy, Jaap Stam and Giovanni van Bronckhorst all tipped to be involved.
Danny Blind, who played under Hiddink at Euro '96, is likely to stay on as assistant and it has been suggested the former Ajax centre-back will be groomed to take the reins after Euro 2016.
