Head coach Leonid Slutsky is to leave CSKA Moscow following Wednesday’s Champions League game against Tottenham, the Russian champions have announced.
The 45-year-old took over at CSKA in 2009, replacing Juande Ramos, and guided the club to three Premier League titles and two domestic cups during his time in charge.
Alongside his role as CSKA coach, Slutsky also took the reins of the Russia national team following Fabio Capello’s departure in August 2015, but his stay ended after the team’s group-stage exit at Euro 2016.
A CSKA statement on Tuesday confirmed Slutsky’s impending departure. It read: “After the match with Tottenham in London, Leonid Slutsky will leave his post as head coach of CSKA Moscow.
“CSKA give their thanks to Leonid Slutsky after seven fruitful years together, including three league titles, two Russian Cups and two Russian Super Cups, as well as the incredible emotions that the team under his leadership have given to the huge army of fans.
“Our club doors are always open to you, Leonid!”
