Athletistic/ Football. One of the famous football coaches in Russia is Leonid Viktorovich Slutsky. He is best known for his work with CSKA. Although there have been some successes and not only there. Slutsky has made significant progress in the Moscow football club. He led this team to the final of the Russian Cup in 2007. In addition, Leonid Slutsky was noticeable in the “Wings of the Soviets”. Under his leadership, the team managed to reach the Europa League, but failed to overcome qualification.

Leonid Slutsky really achieved the main successes with CSKA. He took over the team in October 2019, just at the equator of the UEFA Champions League group stage. As a result, the army team reached the quarter-finals of the main club tournament in Europe. Under the leadership of Leonid Slutsky, the army team three times became champions of Russia (2012/2013, 2013/2014, 2015/2016), won two Russian Cups (2010/2011, 2012/2013) and two Russian Super Cups (2013,2014). Leonid Viktorovich also managed to work with the Russian national team. He accepted it in a difficult situation, but managed to get a direct ticket to Euro 2016. However, at the European Championship itself it was not possible to leave the group.

After leaving CSKA, there were not the most successful spells at Hull City (England) and Vitesse (Netherlands). In December 2019, Leonid Slutsky took over management from Rubin Kazan. At first everything was extremely good. At the end of the 2020/2021 season, the Kazan team took fourth place and received a ticket to the UEFA Conference League. Many players have started to open up. A brilliant game was shown by Georgian defender Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. However, the 2021/2022 season turned out to be unsuccessful. “Rubin” failed to overtake Polish “Rakow” in the UEFA Conference League qualification. At the end of the season, Kazan took 15th place in the RPL table and were relegated to the First League. It was expected that after being relegated from the Premier League, Leonid Slutsky would be sacked from his position. However, the management expressed their confidence in the coach. However, after some time, Slutsky still left the position of head coach “Rubin”. He did it of his own free will.

Rubin fans reacted differently to Slutsky’s decision. They left their comments on the official community of the Kazan club in Vkontakte.

Andrei Meshkov:

– Whiners celebrate, normal fans give thanks for the work done. Thank you for everything!

Ilya Antyshev:

– Thank you for this exceptional season where you came out of the relegation zone and fourth place in the RPL, thank you for everything and good luck in the new club!

Ilyas Sabirzyanov:

– This day will be celebrated in the same way as the victory over Barcelona – every year.

Victor Silkin:

– Haters of Slutsky, you also have a vacation. I will watch with interest how you will stomp the next ones. And remember Slutsky with tears…

Evgeny Filyagin:

– Too bad everyone has forgotten how he got the club out of the relegation zone and then brought them to European competition.

Victor Silkin:

– And the main reason, I will tell you a secret, is that he realized that the judges would not allow Rubin to enter the RPL because of him. Can’t you see how many points they’ve already taken? “Ruby” would now be in first place.

Alexei Vasin:

– What kind of toxic people are here, they immediately forgot how he pulled the club out of the relegation zone in European competitions, everyone has falls, and some just want to smash their faces like that, ashamed.

Rafis Khakimov:

– It seems that the team is now in fourth place, which did not suit the fact, and who will be the receiver, the players will scatter in all directions.
