Free agent Guus Hiddink is being tipped to make his managerial comeback with another international side, according to the bookies.
Hiddink, who departed Turkey by mutual consent following their failure to qualify for Euro 2012, is 9/4 for his next job to be back in the international arena with William Hill. The 65-year-old has previously coached the Netherlands, South Korea, Australia and Russia before taking up his ill-fated reign with Turkey.
“Guus Hiddink has a proven track record of succeeding in international football but having performed admirably in the pressure cooker of Stamford Bridge, we could well see him making a return to the Premier League,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.
A return to the Premier League is presently trading at 3/1 and Hiddink has no shortage of admirers in England. He led Chelsea to the FA Cup in 2009 during his brief stint with the Blues and was heavily linked with the post before Andre Villas-Boas took the reins at Stamford Bridge. No manager in England's top flight has left their post so far this season.
Returning to La Liga is priced at 9/2 and Hiddink has previous experience in Spain having coached Valencia, Real Madrid and Real Betis. His short stint at the Bernabeu was a disaster but he won praise for his earlier work with Valencia. A move to the Bundesliga is 9/1 with an unlikely post with a Turkish club the longshot at 14/1
The Dutch veteran has previously stated he is not keen on a return to club management with his most recent full-time club job being with PSV Eindhoven from 2002-06.
