Experienced Dutch coach takes the reins at Dagestan based side.
Ex-Chelsea caretaker manager Guus Hiddink been appointed manager of Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala.
The 65-year-old former Russia boss has agreed a contract until the end of the 2012-13 season with the big-spending club who had been linked with ex-England boss Fabio Capello.
His predecessor, Yury Krasnozhan, resigned on Monday after less than two months in charge at Anzhi.
“I’m glad to accept such an opportunity,” the Dutchman said.
Hiddink guided Chelsea to FA Cup success in 2009 during his caretaker tenure, having agreed a short-term deal when Luiz Felipe Scolari was sacked in February 2009.

So expect this move to put an end to stories linking the Dutchman with both the England post and any possible return to Stamford Bridge. Anzhi have been in need of a new boss for a while and had turned to Brazilian veteran Roberto Carlos to fill the post on a part time basis in a caretaker role.
