MOSCOW, August 11. /TASS/. Stanislav Cherchesov, the newly appointed head coach of the Russian national football team, will be also occupying several other supervisory posts with the Russian Football Union (RFU), Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko said on Thursday.
"The team’s head coach should be the one to supervise the development of nationwide football and its institutions," Mutko, who is also the president of the RFU, said. "Cherchesov will also chair the Coaching Council and the Technical Committee."
The new coach will oversee country’s football development, the minister added.
The RFU Technical Committee serves as an expert council and is in charge of all issues regarding the national football team and of drafting proposals for the Executive Committee to better the squad. The Technical Committee, previously chaired by RFU Vice President Nikita Simonyan, also executes the powers of the Coaching Council.
Members of the RFU Executive Board voted at its Thursday session to approve Stanislav Cherchesov for the post of the Russian national football team.
Before being appointed today to the post of the Russian team’s head coach, Cherchesov managed Poland’s Legia Warsaw FC, which he led to the title of the country’s champions and the Cup of Poland in the 2015-2016 season.
