The RFU did not renew the contract with the coach of Lokomotiv and the Russian women's team Elena Fomina. She worked in the national team for 8 years. The reason is Fomina's refusal to terminate the contract with Lokomotiv, reports the Telegram channel Mutko Against.
A few days ago, Fomina had a conversation with the leadership of the RFU, where she was told that she would no longer be allowed to combine a post in the national team with work in a club. She had to make a choice and decided to stay at the club. Thus, from January 1, the national team will be left without a coach. One of the main candidates for the post is now the former coach of Lokomotiv and Spartak from Nalchik, Yuri Krasnozhan.
The Russian national team successfully performed well in the qualifying round for the 2022 World Cup and reached the joints, finishing second in the group.
