Hiddink: Brands will be a success with Everton

Former PSV Eindhoven coach Guus Hiddink believes sports director Marcel Brands will bring success to Everton.

Hiddink revealed he tried to sign Brands during his time in Turkey.

“I know him very well, I co-operated a lot with him at PSV and knew him very well before that," he told evertonfc.com.

“He will do very well for Everton. I worked for a long time with him so I know all about his qualities.

“When he was a player I wanted to sign him. He was at Feyenoord and I was in Turkey managing Fenerbahce but it did not work out.

“After that I had a lot to do with him at PSV and we had a lot of contact worldwide. We worked together very well. He is a very good guy and I expect him to be very good for Everton."
