Guus Hiddink has resigned as manager of Anzhi Makhachkala with former Manchester United coach Rene Meulensteen named as his replacement.
Hiddink has played a key role in the emergence of the Dagestan-based club built on the backing of billionaire owner Suleyman Kerimov.
But he has announced he would be standing down with Dutchman Meulensteen already installed as his successor.
An Anzhi statement published on www.fc-anji.ru, read: "FC Anzhi has accepted the request of the head coach to terminate their employment relationship.
"The club sincerely thanks Guus Hiddink for his significant contribution to the club and wishes him success in his future career."
