World cup coach facing tax probe

Football coach and his accountant to face public prosecutor

Guus Hiddink, once touted as the couch to succeed Sven-Goran Eriksson as the
next England football coach, will be tried on fraud charges.

The Dutch-born coach, who most recently led Australia to the last 16 at the
2006 World Cup in Germany, will go on trial in the Netherlands on 15 September
on tax fraud charges.

According to reports, the case revolves around Hiddink claiming residence in
Belgium to avoid paying taxes in Holland.

His accountant, Simon van den Boomen, will also face charges.

Van den Boomen’s offices in Eindhoven were raided last October as part of a
wider investigation and he was briefly arrested at the time.

A spokesperson for the public prosecutor’s office, said Hiddink would be
prosecuted ‘for tax fraud’.

Both deny any wrongdoing.
