MOSCOW, November 2. /TASS/. The coaching staff of the Russian national football team will remain unchanged until the end of the next UEFA Euro Cup, to be held between June 10 and July 10, 2016, Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko said on Monday.
"The coaching staff to stay unchanged until the end of the European championship," Mutko, who is also the president of the Russian Football Union (RFU), said.
Following Russia’s qualifying match defeat to Austria in mid-June the national football team’s coaching staff saw a major overhaul. The previously Italian-dominated staff was dismissed along with former Head Coach Fabio Capello and Russia’s Leonid Slutsky was appointed in early August to take the helm of the team.
Slutsky managed to guide the national team to victories in all matches under his management starting with 1-0 victory over Sweden on September 5.
The new coach’s inaugural match against the Swedish squad followed by a crushing 7-0 victory over Liechtenstein three days later and then he took the team to victories over Moldova (2-1) on October 9 and Montenegro (2-0) on October 12.
Last Friday, media reports announced that Slutsky would continue combining simultaneously the posts of the national team’s head coach and the coach of the CSKA Moscow football club.
The coaching staff of the Russian national football team also includes Sergei Balakhnin, Sergei Ovchinnikov and Sergei Semak. Spain’s Paulino Granero and Fernando Ledesma are physical training assistant coaches with the Russian national squad.
