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.
He will receive in the vicinity of $3.2 million a year as coach with reports suggesting that Chelsea owner and Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, Russia-s richest man, is partly funding his package.
"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.
"If I didn't believe in success I shouldn't have come here. I am very ambitious to be successful with all the people here in Russia."
"They are on the edge of a new period."
Hiddink has one game left in charge with PSV and will then turn his attentions to Australia-s first World Cup campaign in over 32 years. The team comes into camp prior to the friendly match against Greece (May 25), before they head to the Netherlands for their pre-World Cup camp.
