Alex happy with Hiddink

Alex have previously spent two years under the Russia boss at PSV Eindhoven.

“He is a good coach and a fantastic man,” Alex told the club’s official website.

“I think he will play a similar system here to what we have seen, and when I was at PSV we played a 4-3-3 system – we had some very exciting times there.

“In my three years in Holland, two of them were with Guus Hiddink and we won the title both times, and the double once, as well as reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League in my first year.”
