The experienced Dutchman is currently out of work having left his previous role with mega-rich Russian Premier League outfit Anzhi Makhachkala last year.
The Oranje are currently being coached by ex-Ajax and FC Barcelona manager Louis van Gaal, although the Dutchman has already confirmed that he will be leaving his position with the national team after their involvement at this summer’s World Cup comes to an end.
And now Hiddink says that he will be taking over from Van Gaal for what will be a second stint in charge of the national team after the 67-year-old managed the Netherlands between 1995 and 1998.
“I am busy with the KNVB putting together the whole team I want,” Hiddink said in a Friday night radio interview. “That’s going to take a few days or weeks.
“I think we can get much more out of them.
“I won’t be a freewheeling coach,” he said. “We are busy forming a great staff.”
