MOSCOW, June 22. /TASS/. Vitaly Mutko, the president of the Russian Football Union (RFU), said on Wednesday he proposed national team’s Head Coach Leonid Slutsky more time to think over his decision to resign.
"Let us give him more time," Mutko, who also holds the post of the Russian sports minister, said. "We are all very emotional at the moment. If he reiterates [his decision to quit], then there is nothing we can do about it."
Last Monday the Russian national team lost to Wales 0-3 in its third group stage match of the 2016 UEFA Euro Cup and failed to qualify to the next round of Last 16 going back home instead. Slutsky told a news conference after the match that someone else should take his place at the helm of the national squad.
Slutsky is also the head coach of the Russian CSKA Moscow football club, which he guided to the champion’s title in several seasons. Last month he was named the country’s best coach after CSKA Moscow won the champion’s title in the Russian Football Premier League’s 2016/2016 season tournament.
Slutsky managed to guide the national team to victories in all remaining qualifying matches of the 2016 UEFA Euro Cup starting with 1-0 victory over Sweden on September 5 and earned the spot for Russia in Europe’s main football tournament.
