Guus ponders England return

09 Sep 2009 - 09:15:01

Former Chelsea head coach Guus Hiddink has admitted that he may consider a return to England after he ends his time in charge of the Russia national team.

The 62-year-old Dutchman is set to take a break from the game after next summer's World Cup finals, but says that he misses the atmosphere he felt during his few months in England.

He told The Guardian: "I had a wonderful time there and before I worked for Chelsea I was often watching the Premier League.

"I love to be in England to smell the atmosphere. So, missing it? Of course missing it. But I love to work with the guys in Moscow as well.

"Of course England is very attractive. It's unique in that the level of competition is high.

"But I have to make a judgement whether I stop for a few months, or half a year or a year, or do something different within football. I don't know yet. I am ageing in our profession.

"But as long as football gives me the energy and I am not repeating myself - because that is the trap, being a long time in the business that you go on automatic pilot."
