Hiddink wrote in De Telegraaf, “It’s nice to have a breather, but whether the job at Anzhi may or may not have been my last as a trainer has left me wide open,”

“When I worked in Spain, I had already said that I would continue up to two years, that was in 1998 … After two years, I am still going.”

“Even now I keep that option open, as long as i have the energy, it remains an option for me to do something in football, but first im going to watch for a while on the sidelines.”

Hiddink started his managerial career with PSV in 1987, and went on to coach clubs such as Fenerbahce, Valencia, Real Madrid, and Chelsea. While the Dutchman has also coached the Netherlands national side, as well as South Korea, Australia, Russia, and Turkey.
