Hull City part with head coach Leonid Slutsky after poor start to season

Leonid Slutsky won just four Championship matches at Hull
Championship strugglers Hull City have parted company with head coach Leonid Slutsky by mutual consent.

Formerly in charge of CSKA Moscow and the Russia national team, the 46-year-old Slutsky replaced Marco Silva at the KCOM in June, following Hull’s relegation from the Premier League,
They scored deep into injury-time to earn a creditable 2-2 draw at Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday but that left Hull 20th in the standings, just three points clear of the drop zone.

The club confirmed Slutsky’s departure in a statement on Sunday night and said head of club strategy Oleg Yarovinsky had left his role as well.

Tigers vice-chairman Ehab Allam said: “Leonid has worked tirelessly in his role and has acted with complete honour and been a pleasure to work with.

“Unfortunately, results have not improved as both parties would have hoped, and therefore it was agreed for the relationship to come to an end.

“I would like to thank Leonid and Oleg for their efforts here and sincerely wish them well for the future.”
