Bruma praises Hiddink impact

PSV Eindhoven defender Jeffrey Bruma has praised the impact that Guus Hiddink has made during his short time at the club.

Hiddink returned to PSV last week in a consultancy role to assist head coach Phillip Cocu turn around what has been a turbulent season.

Having started the league campaign seven games unbeaten, PSV won only once in the next nine and dropped to 10th in the Eredivisie.

Cocu has inspired five wins in the last seven matches, but the experienced Hiddink was brought in to help the coach and players maintain that form.

Saturday’s 3-2 victory over second-placed Twente lifted PSV up to sixth and Bruma, who played under Hiddink at Chelsea, admitted the 67-year-old gave the club’s players a boost in confidence prior to the match.

“When you’re young you have questions, even outside the game,” the 22-year-old defender said.

“And who better to ask than someone at the top football who really has seen it all. It is a real boost.

“It is a credit that he is willing to come and help.”

Hiddink took up the consultancy role with the club until the end of the season, when he is widely expected to replace Louis van Gaal as Netherlands coach.
