MOSCOW, August 2. /TASS/. The Russian National Football Coaches Union has nominated Valery Gazzaev as a candidate to run in the elections of the president of the Russian Football Union (RFU), the Union Chairman Mikhail Gershkovich told TASS on Tuesday.
"The organization’s bureau meeting was held today and we unanimously nominated Valery Gazzaev as a candidate for the post of the president of the Russian Football Union. We believe that he is a person who can considerably influence the reform of Russian football that needs it very much now," Gershkovich said.
In 2014, Gazzaev presented a program for the Russian football reform called "Football Russia. Time for a change." Prior to that he was engaged in coaching activity, four times winning the country’s national championship (in 1995 - with the Spartak-Alania club, in 2003, 2005, 2006 - with CSKA Moscow) and the Russian Cup (in 2002, 2005, 2006, 2008 - with CSKA), twice - Russian Super Cup (in 2006, 2007 - with CSKA). In 2005, the CSKA Moscow club, coached by Gazzaev, won the UEFA Cup. Gazzaev was the head coach of the Russian national team from 2002 to 2003.
The elections of the RFU president will be held in Moscow on September 24. The deadline for applications to run in the elections is August 15.
