Text size Aa Aa

Dutch coach Guus Hiddink is to retire at the end of this season following an illustrious managing career that has spanned almost 31 years.

The 66-year-old former Real Madrid and Chelsea boss is currently at the helm of Russian topflight club Anzhi, who are second in the league after 17 games and seriously eyeing a spot in the Champions League next term.

During his globetrotting career Hiddink has guided both his native Netherlands and South Korea to the World Cup semi-finals, steered Russia to a European Championships semi-final and won the European Cup – now the Champions League – with Dutch club PSV Eindhoven.
