Hiddink to retire at end of the season

After 30 years in management, former Chelsea and PSV Eindhoven coach Guus Hiddink says he is going to retire from management at the end of the season.

Hiddink, 66, is currently in charge of Anzhi Makhachkala, who are second in the Russian league, three points behind leaders CSKA Moscow. Anzhi have also qualified for the last 32 of the Europa League.

He has coached across the globe during his time, famously winning the 1988 European Cup final with PSV Eindhoven while also taking charge of Netherlands, South Korea and the Australia national sides.

"It was not my intention to stay very long when I joined this club,'' he told De Telegraaf. "I'm basically going to stop at the end of the season. At 66-years-old I think I've nearly had enough.

"I don't know what I'll do. Maybe I'll be an advisor or supervisor to young players or coaches. I want to teach people how to handle certain issues in football or how they can plot their career path. That sounds interesting. I will not disappear into a black hole.''

Hiddink added: "I get up every day with so much energy, but you have to be careful not to get into a routine. You have to be careful that people will think, 'here he is again'. So Anzhi is basically the last team which I will coach.''

Hiddink shot to prominence by winning three Eredivisie titles, three Dutch Cups and the European Cup in his first stint as PSV coach between 1987 and 1990, before returning to the club in 2002 to win three further league titles.

He also took charge of Fenerbahce, Valencia, Real Madrid, Real Betis and Chelsea in a varied career, while also guiding the Dutch national team to the semi-finals of the World Cup in 1998.

Hiddink led South Korea to fourth place at the 2002 World Cup before further successful stints in international football with Australia and Russia. Hiddink agreed an 18-month deal to manage Anzhi in February this year.
