The former Chelsea and Newcastle United manager spent six months in charge under eccentric Grozny chairman Ramzan Kadyrov and was accused of living ‘a party lifestyle’ whilst managing in Russia.
Gullit was then sacked after a disappointing first half of the season with the Chechen side, having only won three games. However, the Dutchman has put that spell behind him and is looking forward to the next challenge he may be presented with.
Gullit said: ‘If the right opportunity comes along, then I will take it. I want to do something where I am challenged. When I went to Chelsea, people said to me: “Chelsea? Are you crazy? Why do you want to go and do that?” For me, there always has to be a challenging part that I like”.
