Published Add your comment

Former Holland coach Guus Hiddink says he plans to retire from management at the end of the season.

The 66-year-old has enjoyed a successful 30-year coaching career - the high point arguably coming when he led PSV Eindhoven to victory in the 1988 European Cup final - and is currently in charge of ambitious Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala.

The Dutchman has guided Anzhi into the last 32 of the Europa League while they are also on course to qualify for the Champions League via the Russian Premier League. "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."
