After 20 years of a coaching career in total and more than a decade at the helm of Zenit-Kazan, this season a famous Russian expert Vladimir Alekno decided to take a sideshow role in this club, which he led to five titles in the CEV Champions League.


Zenit’s five-year dominance at home and four-year dominance in the Champions League came to an end last season. That’s when Alekno stepped aside. In an interview for Sport-Ekspress, he explained his current role in the club.

“I’m a consultant, supervisor, assistant… call it what you want. I take part in every training. But my involvement is indirect. I don’t go around with a whistle. Verbov does that. I don’t interfere with the training process, I find the time and discuss it with Verbov. I fully participate in the life of the team. All decisions are made by Aleksey. All my suggestions are for discussion only. There are no impositions and, especially, orders. What was the point of giving him the chance, and then mess around on my own in the process?” Alekno stated.

However, he refused to give a decisive answer to the question if he will be coaching anymore or not.

“I can’t answer this question yet,” Alekno added.

Re: @Unknown
They say that its because at the tie, the hitters were just tipping the ball, instead of hitting it hard. Then Gattaz, as any captain should do, tried to raise the team up in a way i think she lost it a little bit . Then Kasi was a little too empathetic and started arguing back.
I think Gattaz was wrong in the way she spoke to her team but Kasi was also wrong. Anyway, they said that they already talked and set everyhing right! #LetsGoMinas Reply
