Leonid Slutsky is manager of Hull City Tigers FC.
Having seen his playing career ended by injury as a teenager, Slutsky eventually moved into coaching and took over as Head Coach of FC Moscow in 2005. He then moved on to Krylia Sovetov where he spent almost two years before being appointed Head Coach of CSKA Moscow in 2009.
He guided CSKA to three Russian Premier League titles before resigning last December. During his time with CSKA, Slutsky was also appointed Head Coach of the Russian national side and guided his country to the finals of Euro 2016 before stepping down last summer.
Slutsky is now looking forward to starting work at the KCOM Stadium, 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.”
