Former Chelsea and Netherlands boss Guus Hiddink has retired from management.

The 74-year-old announced his decision in the wake of Curaçao’s failure to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.

Hiddink had been temporarily replaced as Curacao boss by Patrick Kliuvert after contracting Covid-19 and has now announced he will retire from management.

Hiddink said as quoted by Goal: “I haven’t been active lately because of Covid, coincidentally I was evaluating with the president yesterday and we have come to the conclusion that it is better that I stop.”

Hiddink had two spells as Chelsea boss, 2008/09 season and 2015/16 season.
