Everton are searching for a new manager after sacking Ronald Koeman last month – and they appear to be interested in one of his former mentors.
Everton now need a new boss after two defeats under caretaker manager David Unsworth, and The Mirror claim that contact has been made with former Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink.
Hiddink, 70, has been out of management since the end of the 2015-16 season, but he could now head to Everton to steady the ship at Goodison Park.
A move for the Dutchman would be particularly interesting given that Hiddink and former boss Koeman have had a relationship spanning 30 years, with recent ups and downs.
Their story together starts with PSV Eindhoven back in the late 1980's, winning three Eredivisie titles, three KNVB Cups and one European Cup during their time together with the Dutch giants.
Guus Hiddink and Ronald Koeman
Koeman then joined Hiddink's coaching staff with the Netherlands national team for the 1998 World Cup in France, before moving on to Barcelona and eventually starting his own managerial career.
For much of Koeman's time as Ajax boss, Hiddink was his rival at PSV Eindhoven, and when Hiddink left PSV in 2006, his replacement was none other than Koeman himself, succeeding his former mentor.
Their relationship took a turn for the worse in 2014 though, as Hiddink beat Koeman to become the new Netherlands boss, and Koeman was left insulted when he was only offered to be the assistant manager - and it wasn't even Hiddink who offered him the role, it was the Dutch FA, as reported by Sky Sports.
Koeman told The Guardian in 2016 that the whole situation left a bad taste in his mouth after such a long relationship with Hiddink, and whilst they patched things up eventually, it remains to be seen how their relationship could change if Hiddink replaces him - and some Everton fans may even be concerned with the prospect of replacing Koeman with somebody who had such a strong impact on the Dutchman's career as a manager.
