The President “Dynamo” Igor Surkis has clarified the issue with the current status of the coaching staff of the club, headed by Alexander Khatskevich.
Over Khatskevich threatened resignation after a series of disastrous results in the second half of August. Dynamo without a chance lost to “Ajax” in the playoffs of qualification of League of Champions, and in the last two matches of the championship of Ukraine against Chornomorets and Karpaty scored only one point.
After the defeat against Karpaty Khatskevich at the post-match press conference hinted at retirement, but after a conversation with Surkis, the parties decided to continue cooperation.
“Do Khatskevich? I don’t understand why you are asking this question. I have never expressed an opinion that I want to remove it or change it. Yes, the results are not very encouraging. Khatskevich is building a young, new team.
We are the second season in a row dont get into the Champions League. Last year it could be attributed to the fact that Khatskevich only took charge of the team. Now, knowing me, 5-6 years ago, I would have removed the head coach. But I see what a Titanic work has Khatskevich with young players. As it is hard to inculcate in them the football, which he would like to play. I think he should be given another chance. Sure if the team will hear it and me, the big wins will be in the offing” – quoted Surkis portal “Dynamomania”.
Alexander Khatskevich in the context of its activity in “Dynamo” great importance will have the next few days – in the championship of Ukraine “Dynamo” will play with “Dawn”, and in the group stage of the Europa League on Thursday will accept the “Astana”.
