Van Hooijdonk, who won 46 caps for Holland from 1994-2004 and was named in Hiddink's new coaching team on Friday, slated Van Persie last month ahead of the World Cup third place play-off clash against hosts Brazil, claiming the player should have been dropped from the team for a lack of commitment.
Hiddink told The Sun: "There's going to be a discussion between Van Hooijdonk and Van Persie.
"They should sit down together like grown men, bang their heads together and speak their minds as guys should. I plan to schedule a meeting between them soon.
"I'm happy Van Hooijdonk will be working with the under-21s. He's the type of player up-and-coming youngsters can use as an example.
"There is something from the past between him and me - and everyone who knows me realises that I prefer to deal with secret matters openly.
"We have to sit down like big boys and clear them out of the way. I want to do that soon.
"Van Persie is captain of the team at the moment and I see no reason to change that even though it is too soon for me to say that for definite."
