KHIMKI, September 3. /TASS/. The tax on foreign coaches collected from the Russian Football Premiere League (RFPL) will be cancelled, Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko said on Thursday.
"We will relieve the RFPL from financial burdens, extra payments for coaches, legionnaires, etc.," said Mutko who was elected president of the Russian Football Union on Wednesday.
