In a board meeting later this evening, Loko's Board of Directors discussed several issues such as the recent dismal results, selection issues and plans for the future, including the future of head coach Yury Semin. Ultimately, the directors decided against considering the question of sacking Semin and thus decided that he will stay at the helm. Hooray!! What a good news for us fans!! After the several rumours that emerged last weekend I was resigned that Semin will no longer manage Lokomotiv - Good job directors!!
Moreover, the Board of Directors moved on to discuss the potential transfer of Marko Basha to Paris Saint Germain. However, fortunately for us the board decided against and thus for the time being the Montenegrin defender will stay with Lokomotiv.
In addition it is thought that the directors also the disussed the potential appointment of Yury Belous as Sporting Director, who was proposed by no one else Olga Smorodskaya. However following some discussions decided against such appointment and thus the former FC Moscow Sporting Director won't be joining Lokomotiv.
Well done Board!! Brilliant decisions!!
Consequently Yury Semin moved on to publically thank the Board of Directors and the fans for the amout of support they gave him in the last days.
