Guus Hiddink ruled out for Liverpool and Inter job

Guus Hiddink's agent has dismissed reports linking the Dutchman with the vacant job at Liverpool and Inter Milan.

Liverpool are still looking for a new manager after Rafa Benítez left Anfield by mutual consent on Thursday after six years in charge, paying the price for a season that saw the club make an early exit from the Champions League and finish seventh in the Premier League.

Hiddink enjoyed a successful spell in the Premier League as interim Chelsea boss in 2009, but the 63-year-old has only just taken charge of Turkey and agent Cees van Nieuwenhuizen insists he will honour the contract.

He told BBC Sport: "Guus has shown over the years that he is loyal to agreements that he signed. There is no reason today why he would change such behaviour.

"Guus just started two weeks ago in Turkey and as much as he likes the Premier League and as much as he respects Liverpool as a legendary club with a great future ahead, a switch would be hardly doable."

And according to his agent, Hiddink has also turned down an offer to replace José Mourinho as boss of Inter.

Van Nieuwenhuizen added: "Two weeks ago for the same reason he refused the position at Inter Milan post José Mourinho.

"I know, never say never and especially in football this is true, but for me this is an impossible thought."
