Sport-Express picked up Friday with the message that Leonid Slutsky will probably start working at FC Twente from next season. The signatures should be put in the spring, the newspaper claimed. Technical director Jan van Halst dismisses the report in a reaction to Football Zone as’ total nonsense’.
Oleg Yarovinsky worked at CSKA Moscow and Hull City together with Slutsky and would be the main candidate to join the Grolsch Veste as assistant to Slutsky. He, too, said nothing in the Russian media:”FC Twente? Frankly, I do not know anything about that. I really do not know. There has been no contact, absolutely not.
The 46-year-old Slutsky was put on the streets in December by Hull City. With that club from the Championship, the Rus won only 4 out of 21 matches. At the end of January, Slutsky was also appointed as an advisor for the youth training of FK Rostov. He has since advised the club in the field of training of both players and trainers.
I was happy and excited when I was asked by the president of Rostov (Artashes Arutyunyants, red.)”, said Slutsky on the official website of the Russian club,” This agreement with Rostov offers a good opportunity to share my experience with the club’s youth trainers and to contribute to the development of youth football in the region…”Slutsky was still in connection with the development of youth football in November 2016.
Would Leonid Slutsky be a suitable trainer for the Eredivisie, do you think?
