MOSCOW, August 5. /TASS/. Three out of a total of four candidates to take the post of the Russian national football team’s head coach have agreed to take the job if elected, the remaining candidate was still undecided, Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko said on Friday.
Earlier, it was officially announced that the candidates for the post of the Russian national team head coach are Kurban Berdyev, Alexander Borodyuk, Sergei Semak and Stanislav Cherchesov. Mutko held meetings with each of them.
"We still have an option of four candidates," Mutko, who is also the president of the Russian Football Union (RFU), told reporters. "Three candidates confirmed their interest, and the remaining one said would call and tell me his decision."
"I want to convene the RFU Executive Committee to discuss the issue," he said. "The meeting may take place even on Saturday or Sunday. As soon as we make up our mind, we will meet with individual candidates and discuss everything. There will be no temporary figures. The national team will gther on August 28, a decision on the head coach should be taken by that time."
"Each candidate for the post has a vision of his potential national squad and his own selection of players, however the previous roster remains pretty much the same," Mutko added.
Russia’s national team performed poorly at the UEFA Euro 2016, which took place from 10 June to 10 July in France, having failed to reach the playoffs.
The Russians played a draw against England (1:1, June 11), lost to Slovakia (1:2, June 15) and Wales (0:3, June 20). After the defeat from Wales Slutsky announced his resignation.
