Russia Chooses Next Coach for National Football Team
Valery Gazzaev

Russian Football Union has published the official shortlist for the job of next Russia national football team coach. 

       There are 13 professional coaches in the list, which is published on the Union's official website. The names are: former Inter and Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez; Athletic Bilbao coach Marcelo Bielsa; former Russia coach Valery Gazzaev; former Barcelona coach Guardiola; former England boss Capello; former Dynamo Moscow coach Andrei Kobelev; former Anzhi Makhachkala coach Yuri Krasnozhan; former Italy coach Marcello Lippi; former Cameroon coach Valery Nepomnyashchy; under-21 coach Nikolai Pisarev; former Tottenham Hotspur coach Harry Redknapp and Dynamo Kiev coach Yury Syomin.

      The post became vacant after Dick Advocaat stepped down in the wake of Russia's humiliating Euro 2012 group stage exit.

      Russia's sports minister Vitaly Mutko has said the final decision will be taken by July 21.

      Five of the 13 coaches - Guardiola, Capello, Redknapp, Benitez, and Nepomnyashchy - are currently free agents.

      Valry Gazzaev has the highest chances among other Russian specialists. The 57-year-old took CSKA Moscow to the UEFA Cup in 2005, the first European silverware won by any Russian team, and took four Russian league titles.

      Previously it was reported that the Football Union's ex-head Sergei Fursenko had signed a contract with "Manchester City" coach Roberto Manchini. However, later the Italian specialist signed a new contract with "City" and so became the highest-paid coach in England.
