Socceroos coach Guus Hiddink officially put pen to paper, to become Russia-s new coach after his commitment-s are finished with Australia at the FIFA World Cup™ Germany 2006.
The Dutchmen has just delivered a second successive Dutch title to PSV Eindhoven, but since taking Australia to the World Cup he has been linked with every major job in world football that is available, including that of England national coach, Real Madrid and the Russian national team.

"I am very proud that I can give my contribution to develop Russian football and make Russia a great football country again because the potential is enormous," Hiddink told reporters.
