Football club “Rostov” by mutual agreement to terminate the contract with its head coach Leonid Kuchuk, who held this post from July 2017. Kirichenko again took the post of acting coach of FC “Rostov”.
Earlier, Leonid Stanislavovich Kuchuk has held the position of head coach of the football team “Sheriff” (Moldova), “Arsenal” (Kiev), “Lokomotiv” (Moscow) and Kuban (Krasnodar). However, being the coach of the Moldovan club, Kucuk won six times the super Cup. And with the Moscow club “locomotive” Kucuk took bronze in the championship of Russia of 2013. According to experts, “Rostov” suffered a lot of losses for the current year and from the very beginning realized that it would be foolish to count on the championship of the country. In addition to the prolonged absence of the head coach, the team has been assembled relatively recently and so the athletes did not have time to properly gel together. Kucuk resigned by mutual agreement with the owners of the club.
Yet Dmitri Kirichenko is the acting head coach of the club. He holds a position in the coaching staff of “Rostov” with the end of 2014 and for the second time, was appointed acting coach.
