Former South Korea coach Guus Hiddink will lead Team 2002 in a clash with Team 2012 in a K-League All Stars game in Seoul next month.

The K-League said the 65-year-old, who is currently in charge of Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala, recently informed them that he would accept their invitation to lead Team 2002 in the game.

Hiddink’s side are likely to be made up of key members of the squad which reached the World Cup semi-finals under the Dutchman. The Team 2012 will be a selection of the current K-League’s best players.

K-League honorary public relations ambassador and 2002 World Cup hero Ahn Jung-Hwan said he was delighted by Hiddink’s decision, as he is a legend in South Korea for his efforts a decade ago.

“I am touched by his love for Korean football,” Ahn told reporters.

“We consider it not just a one-time event, but will show our best to show our appreciation.”
