Guus Hiddink resigns from Anzhi Makhachkala

Reports in Russia are claiming that Guus Hiddink has resigned as manager of FC Anzhi Makhachkala.

Hiddink joined Anzhi in February 2012 and extended his initial 18 month contract in June 2013, but now appears to have stepped down a matter of days after Tito Vilanova left Barcelona. Coincidence?

Meanwhile, Alex Ferguson's former first-team coach Rene Meulensteen has been appointed in Hiddink's place at Anzhi.
