Hull City confirm Leonid Slutsky appointment
Hull City have appointed Leonid Slutsky as their new head coach, the Championship club have announced.
Slutsky resigned from his position as CSKA Moscow coach in December and replaces Marco Silva, who left the club after Hull's relegation from the Premier League.
The club have not revealed the length of the 46-year-old’s contract, and confirmed that his appointment is subject to international clearance.
“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,” said Slutsky, who has also coached the Russian national team.
The former CSKA manager won three Russian Premier League titles during his seven-year stint at the club.
Slutsky becomes Hull’s fourth manager in the space of 12 months following the tenures of Steve Bruce, Mike Phelan and Silva.
