Cocu is in his first season as head coach of PSV, and he has welcomed the arrival of Hiddink, who will once a week be available on the training  ground to offer advise, but will not be on the bench at games.

The PSV coach told the official site, “Guus and I have had regular telephone contact over the last few months.I am glad that he is now ready to step up the existing contact ”

“You notice immediately that players go to him for advice . Also, I learned so much from him as a player. ”

Hiddink had two spells as coach of PSV, guiding the club to a European Cup win, six Eredivisie titles, and four cup wins in that time. Next summer Hiddink will take over from Louis van Gaal as Netherlands coach.
