Ruud Gullit joins Terek Grozny

Former L.A. Galaxy manager Ruud Gullit has made the shock decision to join Russian Premier League side Terek Grozny as coach.

Gullit signed an 18-month contract with the club, who finished 12th in the league last season behind eventual winners Zenit St Petersburg, and could even continue in the role by signing an extension at the end of the deal.

"I'm very happy with my contract of a year and a half. Next weekend I will join up with the team and we will begin preparing for the season,'' he said. "I look forward to getting back into it and this is a beautiful, great opportunity for me."

The Dutchman, who previously managed Chelsea, Newcastle and Feyenoord and has also appeared as a football pundit on television, has been set the target of a top-eight finish next season by club president Ramzan Kadyrov.

Terek is based in the formerly wartorn province of Chechnya in the south of the country and Gullit takes over from Anatoly Baidachny who was in charge of the side for only one season.
