Sergey Mikhalyov: I signed a contract with Salavat Yulaev
Former Lada Togliatti sports director Sergey Mikhalyov said he had signed a contract with Salavat Yulaev. Mikhalyov previously coached the Ufa club and won with them the champions’ title in 2008.
«Today I have signed a contract with the club for a period of one year. I’m already supervising team’s matters. The contract is valid until April 30, 2012. The possibility of extending the contract will depend on the next season’s performance. Anything below third place will be regarded as a poor result. On July 18 my appointment will be confirmed officially,» said Mikhalyov as quoted by RIA Novosti.
