Who The Hell Is Hiddink?

Last updated : 12 January 2006 By Footy Mad - Editor
Accordng to newspaper reports this morning, Guus Hiddink has ruled himself out of the running for the Newcastle United manager's job, should it become vacant.

Apparently this guy is the PSV Eindhoven and part-time Australia coach who has just guided Socceroos to the World Cup finals. Very nice indeed, but who has linked him with the Newcastle job?

The reports confirm: "There has been no contact between chairman Freddy Shepherd and Hiddink, or any other potential candidate, with Souness still under contract for 18 months".

So that's a story dragged out of nowhere, leading nowhere, and obviously dug up to fill an empty space on the back page.
