MOSCOW, July 02. /ITAR-TASS/. The Football Union of Russia (FUR) has made the decision to tighten the rules for inviting foreign coaches to Russia.
A commission on coaching excellence chaired by Andrei Leskakov is to meet on Thursday, July 3, to debate this issue. It will discuss the sum to be paid by clubs for inviting foreign coaches. “The main task now is to work out a general approach. We will agree the sums later,” he said.
Prior to the start of the Russian championship, first division clubs from the National Football League which had invited foreigners to work as their chief coaches had each paid 2.5 million rubles ($72.8 thousand) to the FUR.
Krylya Sovetov Samara paid for Francois Vercauteren of Belgium and Tosno for Nikolay Kostov of Bulgaria.
“We have already met with the heads of the football clubs and will now propose expanding the tax to make the clubs pay for the foreign assistants to the chief coaches. We are convinced that those who make such a step should solve not only the task of achieving certain results but also that of training local specialists,” Gershkovich said.
He noted that the tax for the National Football League clubs might be smaller than for those participating in the Russian Football Premier League. Currently they pay 2.5 million rubles ($72.8 thousand) and 5 million rubles (145.8 thousand), respectively.
