MOSCOW, October 12. /TASS/. The Russian national football team head coach’s contract with Moscow’s CSKA Football Club is worth one billion US dollars, CSKA President Yevgeny Giner told journalists on Monday.
"How much is Slutsky’s contract? One billion US dollars," he said.
Giner said Slutsky would go on coaching Moscow’s CSKA Football Club till the end of the 2015/16 season.
"Of course, like the entire country, I am glad that our team has qualified for the European championship," Giner said. "We were in a suspended state some two months ago and now the team has demonstrated good skills and coped with the task. As for Slutsky’s further work in the national team, he is now very exhausted. I feel sorry for him as it is a daring task to coach a club and a national team at the same time. Speaking about his fate in the national team, no one can insist now that Leonid Viktorovich [Slutsky] should leave CSKA before the end of the season. Further on, he will take his decision. We will speak with him about it and will decide what to do."
On Monday, Russia defeated Montenegro 2-0 at home and qualified for the 2016 European Championship. Now, Russia is second in Group G with 20 points.
The draw for the Euro 2016 finals will take place at the Palais des Congres de la Porte Maillot in Paris on 12 December 2015.
After the match, chief of the Kremlin administration Sergey Ivanov said the Russian Football Union should buy out the contract of the national team’s head coach Leonid Slutsky from the CSKA Moscow Football Club.
"I think Slutsky should stay with the national team," he said. "He can combine his posts [of the national team’s head coach and coaching CSKA Moscow] till summer, since the national team will have no official matches in this period. The Russian Football Union should make an offer to CSKA President Yevgeny Giner and buy out Slutsky’s contract."
In the meantime, Slutsky told Russia’s First Channel after Russia after the game he had received no offer from the Russian Football Union to continue cooperation.
