Sergey Ovchinnikov joins PFC CSKA coaching staff
— I'm really happy to join PFC CSKA, club with rich history and big traditions. This offer is a big challenge for me, and I accepted it with big pleasure. I'll meet the team for the first time on Saturday. I'm acquainted with some of the players already, and it might help me in the adaptation process.
I'm familiar with Leonid Slutskiy, we know each other for a long time. I think that he summed up my professional and personal qualities before inviting me to the coaching staff. I'll do my best to make our cooperation long-lasting and productive.
