During his five-day trip, Hiddink will meet Chung Mong-joon, honorary FIFA Vice-President, and Park Ji-sung of Manchester United and participate in several events.

The 64-year-old has been in charge of the national teams of the Netherlands, Australia and Russia. He is currently in charge of the Turkish national football team

Hiddink has recently been linked with a possible return to Chelsea in the English Premier League after Carlo Ancelotti was sacked last month.

He had a successful five-month stint at the English club two years ago and has been acting as an adviser for Chelsea.
