Former Chelsea boss to leave Russia role

The Dutchman’s contract with Russia expires at the end of June and the deal will not be extended following talks with the new president of the Russian federation Sergei Fursenko.

“After a very pleasant conversation with the new federal president it was decided that after my contract expires on June 30 we will part ways,” Hiddink wrote in his column in Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf.

“We decided this now in order to give the federation sufficient time to find a successor.”
