The Dutch coach of Russia's football team is accused of tax evasion in Holland and threatened with jail
The coach of Russia’s football team, Guus Hiddink, has been threatened with a
10-month prison sentence in his native Holland over an alleged tax fraud.
Prosecutors have called for the 10-month sentence for Hiddink, accusing him
of evading 1.4m euros of Dutch tax by claiming he was residing in Belgium when
he was living in Eindhoven.
He has denied any wrongdoing.
Hiddink recently made the headlines by being repeatedly linked with the
manager’s position at Chelsea.
