Spartak Moscow has officially announced Dmitry Alenichev as the team’s new head coach for the next two seasons.
Alenichev, a former Spartak player, has been tipped to get the job at one of the nation’s most popular team for many months.
He is replacing Murat Yakin who was doomed after a lackluster season, especially after humiliating defeats at the newly built stadium Otkritie.
At a press conference, Dmitry Alenichev thanked the club’s board and personally owner Leonid Fedun, who earlier stepped down as chairman, for the honor.
Alenichev debuted in 1991 for Lokomotiv Moscow, where he played four years before moving to Spartak. During his five-year stint, he won three Russian leagues and two cups, and was also elected Russian player of the year in 1997.
In 1998, he was signed by AS Roma, and then moved to AC Perugia in December 1999.
In 2000 he was bought by FC Porto and in 2004, he went back to Spartak. You can watch some of his best goals here
Earlier, Russia-IC reported that Spartak was considering three candidates for the job of the main coach for next season. According to newly appointed Spartak CEO Sergey Rodionov, the list is as follows: Dmitry Alenichev, Kurban Berdyev, and Viktor Goncharenko.
Former Bayern coach, Felix Magath, was also reported to be offered a job with a contract worth 3 million euro a year.
Earlier, Spartak Moscow lost forward Artiom Dzyuba who is going to move to St Petersburg this summer, according to a new contract he signed with Zenit. The terms of the contract have not been disclosed.
Roman Shirokov, the new signing expected to shine in Spartak, fell out with the coach and management and was sent on loan to Krasnodar, where he scored a number of important goals and made several assists.
Having won 12 Soviet championships (second only to Dynamo Kyiv) and 9 of 19 Russian championships they are one of the country's most successful clubs. They have also won the Soviet Cup 10 times and the Russian Cup 3 times. Spartak have also reached the semi-finals of all three European club competitions.
