Hull appoint Stutsky as Marco Silva replacement

Hull City have appointed Leonid Slutsky as their new head coach after the departure of Marco Silva.

Silva left Hull City after he failed to keep the Tigers in the Premier League, and quickly agreed a deal to replace Walter Mazzari at Watford.

Silva has now been replaced by Russian coach Leonid Stutsky and left his last job at CSKA Moscow back in December 2016.

Speaking to the club’s website, Slutsky said:

“I am delighted to become the head coach of Hull City and I am very much looking forward to the challenge of guiding the club back to the Premier League.

“I already know that this is an important club with a big and loyal fanbase, I’ve had a good feeling about it ever since meeting the Allam family and I can’t wait to get started.”

Slutsky has won three league titles with CSKA as well as managing the Russian national side.
