SYDNEY: Guus Hiddink is unlikely to continue as Australia coach after the World Cup, according to a top official of the Football Federation Australia (FFA). Of late, Hiddink has been heavily linked with coaching positions in Russia and England. "It's unlikely Guus will be staying with us," Football Federation Australia (FFA) chief executive John O'Neill told news agency AFP. "It was never expected that he would."

O'Neill said that discussions were going on with the Dutch maestro. "Nothing we have talked about has indicated that he will be staying on,” said O'Neill. Hiddink took over the reins of Australia after the sacking of Frank Farina last year but it is only on a part-time basis. He guided the Australians to the World Cup finals after a thrilling playoff win over Uruguay.
