Guus Hiddink signs new contract with Russia through 2010

Guus Hiddink has signed a new contract to coach Russia through the 2010 World Cup.
Russian soccer federation spokesman Andrei Malosolov says the Dutchman signed the contract on Monday.
He didn't give any financial details, though Russian media have speculated that Hiddink was looking for some compensation for taxes.
Many Russians were reluctant to let a non-Russian coach the national team. But after Russia beat England in a European Championship qualifier last October, he was hailed as a hero.
