South Korea coach Guus Hiddink has confirmed that he will become the new coach of PSV Eindhoven.

“First I need to sort some thingsout in Korea and that is where I will stay until Friday,” he said.

“There will be some parties and ceremonies for me to attendbefore I return to Holland and get things sorted with PSV. First I have to get over the recent experience, get a fresh mind and then it will be a great challenge for me to start my new job.”

Hiddink’s confirmation will come a a relief to PSV officials. The former coach of the Dutch national side was believed to have been a target for Leeds United after the Premier League club sacked David O’Leary last week.
