Agent quells Hiddink possibility

Published Add your comment

Guus Hiddink's "strong personal relationship" with ousted captain John Terry could rule him out of contention to be the next England manager.

The vacancy was created when Fabio Capello resigned over the Football Association board's decision to strip Terry of the captaincy while he fights a charge of racially abusing QPR defender Anton Ferdinand. Terry denies the charge.

Hiddink worked closely with Terry during a short spell with Chelsea in the second half of the 2008-09 season, and his agent Cees van Nieuwenhuizen told the Daily Telegraph: "I don't, based on previous conversations with England FA board members, imagine that it would work. Guus also has a very strong personal relationship with John Terry and would be on his side in all this."
