MOSCOW:  Stanislav Cherchesov, a former head coach of the Russian national football team, has signed a contract to manage Hungary’s Ferencvaros FC, the club’s press office announced in a statement on Monday.

The 58-year-old specialist from Russia replaced in this post Austria’s Peter Stoger, who has been at the helm of the club since June 2021.

"In the future, our defending men's football team in the OTP Bank League will be preparing for the tasks ahead under the leadership of our new Russian head coach Stanislav Cherchesov," the statement from the club reads.

The press office of the Russian Football Union (RFU) announced on July 23 that 52-year-old Valery Karpin, who manages the Russian Premier League (RPL) Rostov football club, would take charge of the national football team replacing Stanislav Cherchesov.

Cherchesov, 58, took the reins of the national football squad in the summer of 2016, signing a contract with the RFU (the Russian Football Union) to work as the head coach of the team until August 2018.

In July 2018, the RFU extended the contract with Cherchesov for two more years stipulating an option of prolonging it for another two-year term. The decision of the Russian governing football body to maintain its partnership with Cherchesov followed the national team’s successful home performance during the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Led by Cherchesov, the Russian national football team managed to reach the knockout stage of the 2018 FIFA World Cup advancing with a win over the Spanish team in the Round of 16 and then losing on a penalty shootout in the quarterfinals to Croatia, who eventually went on to the final of the world championship in Russia.

However, during the 2020 UEFA Euro Cup in June 2021, the Russian national team, led by Cherchesov, failed to clear the group stage of the tournament, which was posponed for one year due to the global spread of the novel coronavirus. The Russian football team wrapped up its European championship tour finishing in Group B’s cellar with three points after three matches.

The team kicked off its 2020 Euro Cup campaign with a 0-3 defeat against Belgium and a 1-0 win over Finland - both matches were played in St. Petersburg, Russia. Nevertheless, they lost to Denmark 1-4 in Copenhagen on the night of June 21.

On June 30, the RFU Technical Committee gathered for a session to assess the performance of the national team at the European football championship. The Committee gave Cherchesov’s endeavors at the 2020 UEFA Euro Cup low marks branding them unsatisfactory. On July 8, the RFU stated that the head coach of the national football team, Stanislav Cherchesov, and the governing football body of Russia had severed their contract.
