Fabio Capello will stay with Russia for the 2018 World Cup that the country will host.
The national team manager has extended his contract with the Russian Football Union until 2018.
Earlier, Russia-IC reported that the head of the Russian Football Union, Nikolay Tolstykh, wanted to get the deal closed as soon as possible.
Russia is satisfied with the national team's progress, he was quoted as saying.
Earlier, the Italian press reported that it was the Russian president who spoke in favour of keeping Capello on board for five more years.
The Italian coach has been working with the national team since July 26, 2012.
Nikolay Tolstykh declined to give out any details of the contract, including the salary. But according to his deputy, Nikita Simonyan, the national team’s coach will have Russian assistants.
Many commentators have welcomed the move while eithers were cautious pointing to fact that long-term relationship could demotivate the Italian coach.
Capello is yet to lead Russia at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, they argue.
However, all fans and experts are unanimous that Fabio Capello has been instrumental in getting Russia to its first World Cup since 2002, beating Portugal in the fight for the top place in table.
The Russian national football team will be facing Belgium, Algeria and South Korea in Group H at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
The draw that took place on Friday in Mata de São João has made Russian fans happy because Russia managed to avoid any death groups.
The first match is slated for June 17 against South Korea, five days later Russia take on Belgium. The final game of the Group stage will take place on June 27 against Algeria.
The 2014 World Cup will take place in 12 Brazilian cities from June 12 to July 13.
On November 21, Adidas has unveiled the new team kit which features a deep red jersey with an print symbolizing Russia’s achievements in space exploration.
Meanwhile, Capello has remained high at the top of the pay league, according to Sporting Intelligence.
He’s in fifth place pocketing an estimated £6.51 million, just behind Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola, Jose Mourinho (£8.34 million, Chelsea), Arsene Wenger (Arsenal, £6.89 million), Marcelo Lippi (£8.34 million, Guangzhou).
Another highly-paid coach in the Russian football is also an Italian. Luciano Spalletti earns £2.75 for coaching Zenit St. Petersburg.
