Guus Hiddink would consider Inter Milan says agent
Tuesday 21 June 2011
Guus Hiddink's agent has suggested the Dutchman may be interested in becoming the next coach of Inter Milan.
The role is likely to be vacated by Leonardo shortly, with the former AC Milan boss poised to become Paris St Germain's new sporting director.
Inter have already made moves to find a successor for Leonardo but have met several obstacles with Porto's Andre Villas-Boas' release clause too steep while Sinisa Mihajlovic has reiterated his commitment to Fiorentina.
Former Argentina boss Marcelo Bielsa has also ruled himself out of the running.
But Cees van Nieuwenhuizen has said his client, currently in charge of the Turkish national side, "would evaluate" Inter's offer should the Nerazzurri reach an agreement with Hiddink's current employers.
"We have never spoken to (Inter president Massimo) Moratti," Van Nieuwenhuizen told the Gazzetta dello Sport newspaper.
"Hiddink has a contract with the Turkish federation and therefore before any talks can begin, Moratti must contact the (Turkish) federation and say he is interested in Guus.
"He is contracted until 2012 so, for the time being, there is no possibility that he can coach Inter.
"If Inter reached an agreement with Turkey? Well at that point Hiddink would certainly evaluate the Nerazzurri offer but he is a professional and he has never broken a contract in his whole career."
Hiddink has also been linked with a move back to Chelsea, with whom he had a successful caretaker spell in 2009, possibly in a sporting director role with the west London club reportedly targeting Villas-Boas to be their next coach.
