Guus Hiddink: Anzhi boss to consider his future amid PSG links

Guus Hiddink: Anzhi boss to consider his future amid PSG links

Real chief Florentino Perez has made no secret of his desire to land Ancelotti as Jose Mourinho's replacement.

However, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is standing firm and is seemingly not willing to let him leave.

Hiddink is currently with big-spending Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala and PSG, despite their stance, are putting plans in place should Ancelotti depart.

According to reports in France, one of the names in the frame is Hiddink, whose deal with Anzhi expires at the end of their season.

"Renew with Anzhi? We'll see. I'll talk about my future in the coming days," the experienced Dutchman is quoted as saying by Sky Italia.

Another option for PSG is appointing sporting director Leonardo in the role until they find a boss they want, with Arsenal's Arsene Wenger linked with the job in 2014, when his current deal at the Emirates expires.

However, Leonardo has a nine-month touchline ban hanging over him after he barged into the referee during PSG's game with Valenciennes, although an appeal against the punishment is due to be heard later this month.

Brazilian ace Lucas Moura admitted he would be more than happy to see Leonardo get the job.

"It is only speculation. If it should become concrete, Leonardo would be welcome on the bench," he said.

"He is a big name, who has experience both as a player and a coach. He was already on the bench of big teams. He knows how the club works. He will get support from all players."

One man who has distanced himself from the role is Laurent Blanc, who looks to have lost out to Rudi Garcia for the Roma role.

"Again, it's fantasy," he said when asked about PSG.

But he admits he does want a job. "Yes I will [be looking for a new job], but at this moment, there is nothing," he revealed to La Provence.

"We can talk about many things, but the one thing I can say is it will not happen with Roma. They are the only club I have had real contact with, and it will not happen.

"Everything else is speculation. I also heard you sent me to Real Sociedad, but I never had any discussion with those people."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

H

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
