When PSV travel to Waalwijk tomorrow night, Guus Hiddink will reach a milestone in his career as a trainer coach. He will be coach of the Eindhoven outfit during a domestic league game for the 250th time. Since he took charge as PSV head coach, PSV have won 183 out of the 249 league fixtures so far and they lost only 25 games. Guus Hiddink started his professional career as a trainer in 1983, when he coached PSV youth teams. At the beginning of the 1986/87 season Hans Kraay was Technical Manager at PSV and Hiddink had meanwhile become coach. When Kraay resigned in March 1987 because of negative statements issued by Ruud Gullit in the weekly magazine Revue, Hiddink took over as manager. Guus Hiddink guided PSV to winning the European Cup I 1988. He fancied an adventure with the Turkish side Fenerbahçe two years later. After spells with Valencia CF, Real Madrid and the nationals teams of Holland and South Korea (who were fourth at the World Cup 2002), he returned to Eindhoven in the summer of 2002. Kees Rijvers is still record holder where it concerns being coach at PSV games. Rijvers, who is 79 years of age, took charge of PSV during 281 games. Bram Appel, who was in charge as PSV coach during 161 games, is third in the ranking. As put above, while Guus Hiddink was at the helm, PSV won 183 games, drew 41 games and lost 25 games. PSV scored as many as 676 goals and conceded only 189 goals.
