Former general director of Moscow Lokomotiv Ilya Gerkus expressed his opinion on possible candidates for the post of head coach of the Russian national football team.
“It’s better to hurry with the coach. Our audience will not allow building a team. They will be devoured with giblets. Not making it to the 2022 World Cup for the sake of building a team? Most will choose to go to the tournament. Then, however, they will spit that they didn’t come out again. In fact, we only went out once. We look at the national team very dramatically, we are used to making a tragedy “, – quotes Herkus “Match TV”.
He noted that he is leaning towards the option with a foreign specialist.
“Tedesco? I would have doubts about him, because he is young and did not work with the national team. You have to be hyper-authoritative. The elderly tend to be more successful. This is a special art. I would try to steal the coach from Belgium. Martinez would love to take it. Petkovic? He is good. Knows Russian. When I read about him, I thought why he was never on the roster, ”added Herkus.
The previous mentor of the Russian national team was Stanislav Cherchesov, who led the team from 2016 to 2021. At the 2018 World Cup, the national team under his leadership reached the quarterfinals, and at Euro 2020 failed to overcome the group stage.
Earlier, Alexander Dyukov answered when the RFU decided on the head coach of the Russian national team.
