ROSTOV-ON-DON, September 9. /TASS/. Kurban Berdyev has been appointed to the post of the vice president of the Russian football club Rostov and entered the coaching staff as well, according to a statement on the official website of the Rostov Region’s authorities.
The statement also said that Ivan Danilyants was appointed the head coach of Rostov FC, which recently qualified for the first time ever in the club’s history for the group stage of the UEFA Champions League.
"The decision regarding keeping Danilyants and Berdyev working in Rostov FC is compliant with the interests of the club and its fans," Vasily Golubev, the governor of Russia’s southern Rostov Region, said.
Berdyev, 63, was the head coach of Rostov FC between 2014 and 2016 and led the club to second place in the 2015-2016 season of the Russian Premier League.
"The club’s team fights for the prestige of the country and our region on the European arena and it means that we must all create all the necessary conditions for the club to decently perform in the main continental tournament," Golubev added.
Rostov FC is one of only two Russian football clubs, which qualified for the Group Stage tournament of the UEFA Champions League this year. CSKA Moscow FC is the other Russian club.
The club from the country’s southern region was receiving Ajax FC at home stadium on August 24 in the second leg of the 2016/2017 UEFA Champions League play-off round. Rostov FC defeated Ajax on its home turf with the impressive 4-1 flashing on the scoreboard after the final whistle.
The first leg encounter in Amsterdam on August 16 ended with 1-1 draw and with the score of 5-2 on the aggregate Rostov FC advanced to the group stage of the UEFA Champions League tournaments for the first time in the club’s history.
