Leonid Slutsky has been crowned as best coach this year in a poll by Russia’s journalists.

      He replaced Fabio Capello as chief coach of the Russian national team and led the squad to second place in the group, securing a berth at Euro 2016.

      Russia will face England, Wales, and Slovakia in Euro 2016 as decided in the official draw ceremony held on Saturday in France.

      Fabio Capello, who’s been working with the national team since July 26, 2012, is set to stay with Russia until the 2018 World Cup that the country will host. The national team manager has extended his contract with the Russian Football Union even before the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

      Earlier, Russia-IC reported that the head of the Russian Football Union, Nikolay Tolstykh, wanted to get the deal closed as soon as possible. Many commentators have challenged the move over Russia’s lackluster performance at the championship.

      Fabio Capello put together a new team ahead of the Euro 2016 qualifiers. The vast majority of pundits blamed him for dropping rising star Artiom Dzyuba, who finished the previous season as the top scorer of the Russian Premier League. Capello has lamented many times that good Russian forwards are few and far between but didn’t pick the Spartak player on his lineup.

      Dzyuba himself was voted as one of Top 10 of Russian athletes of the outgoing year.
