    Guus Hiddink does not plan to stay as coach of big-spending Russian club Anzhi for the long term, he suggested in a recent interview with R-Sport.

    Guus Hiddink does not plan to stay as coach of big-spending Russian club Anzhi for the long term, he suggested in a recent interview with R-Sport.

    Hiddink, 65, joined Anzhi in February on a six-month deal with an option for a further year which he has since taken up.

    “Understand, I’m no longer young and, anyway, the time will come when I should step aside for younger people,” he said when asked about his contract at the club.

    “Let’s not look that far. At the moment I like to work side by side with young people, I charge up my energy from them.”

    Hiddink led Anzhi to a fifth-place finish in his first season at the club, earning the team Europa League football, although they will be forced to play their home games at a neutral stadium after UEFA banned their home province of Dagestan from hosting games over security concerns.
