thumbnail Hello,

The former Chelsea boss admits that he'd prefer not to face opposition from the Netherlands in the next round of Europe's second tier competition

Following victories against AZ Alkmaar and Vitesse Arnhem in their Europa League qualifying matches, Anzhi Makhachkala boss Guus Hiddink is hoping to avoid drawing a Dutch side in the tournament's group stages.

The mega-rich Russian side enjoyed a 5-0 away win over AZ last night, winning 6-0 on aggregate after a tightly contested first leg and also beat Vitesse 4-0 on aggregate earlier in qualification.

When questioned as to whether he would like to face the other remaining Dutch team in the Europa League, PSV Eindhoven, Hiddink seemed to prefer the idea of avoiding them.

"I've had enough of all of the Dutch teams for now. They won't let me cross the border if we go on like this," joked the Anzhi boss, speaking to AD.nl.

Anzhi and Hiddink don't have long to wait to discover their European fate, as the Europa League group stage draw will be made today.
