“Mutko, who ensured success to the Olympic Games in Sochi, should get back to football,” Fedun said, commenting on the Union’s financial problems.
The current President of the Football Union of Russia is Nikolai Tolstykh. He was elected to the post in September 2012 for a term of four years.
“Impeachment is impossible,” Fedun said. “The problem is not with Tolstykh, it is in the entire football system. It needs a complete overhaul. There is no financial blockade of the Football Union of Russia. It is simply incapable to work with sponsors. Thus, the second league needs reforms.”
Mutko was President in 2005-2009. In May 2008, he was appointed Minister of Sport, Tourism and Youth Policy and since May 2012, he has been Russian Minister of Sport.
