Guus Hiddink will take time to decide upon his future, after Russia were denied a place at the World Cup finals by Slovenia.
The Dutchman has been constantly linked with a return the Premier League following a successful spell in charge of Chelsea last season.
Hiddink’s current contract with the Russian FA expires in 2010, but following their failure to reach the World Cup finals after a 1-0 defeat to Slovenia in Maribor on Wednesday night his future is once again in the spotlight.
He said: “I have an existing contract until the end of the World Cup finals in July 2010. The question [of whether I will continue to Euro 2012] will require some time for thought.
“Before the matches with Germany and Slovenia the Russian Football Association (RFS) expressed their desire to continue working together. But we’ll talk about the future at a later stage.”
Hiddink took over as coach in 2006 and guided Russia to a semi-final place at the 2008 European Championships.
