Hull City appoint Leonid Slutsky as their new manager


Tigers have officially announced the appointment of former Russia national team manager as their new manager.

The club have officially announced the appointment of Slutsky  following the departure of Portuguese manager Marco Silva who is now a manager at Watford.

The 46-year-old manager will take the helm at Hull following their relegation from the English Premier League to the English Championship.

It’s worth mentioning that Slutsky had a long spell at CSKA Moscow with three Russian League titles to his name, two Russian cups and two Russian Super Cups. He also managed the Russian national team in the 2016 European Championship.

The Russian manager is set to arrive in England next week to start his managerial role. Hull City Egyptian Vice-Chairman commented on the appointment saying: “I am delighted to welcome Leonid as our new Head Coach. After a thorough recruitment process, Leonid’s attention to detail, thoughts on playing style and his ambition made him the stand-out candidate.

“The Club has made plans for pre-season training and friendlies, with some exciting fixtures to be announced next week, and squad planning with Leonid is already underway. Leonid has enjoyed success at both club and international level and I am excited about his plans for guiding us back towards the Premier League.”

Slutsky expressed his delight following his new role in England saying: “I am delighted to become the Head Coach of Hull City and I am very much looking forward to the challenge of guiding the Club back to the Premier League.

“I already know that this is an important Club with a big and loyal fanbase, I’ve had a good feeling about it ever since meeting the Allam family and I can’t wait to get started next week.”
It’s worth noting that Ahmed Elmohamady’s Hull City have been relegated from the English Premier League this season after coming 18th with 34 points.
