The Russian Ice Hockey Federation (FHR) on its official website announced its decision to appoint Alexei Zhamnov as the head coach of the Russian national team.
On February 27, an expert council of authoritative representatives of hockey took place to agree on the candidacy of the head coach. It was held with the participation of Vladislav Tretyak, homepage Boris Mikhailov, Valery Kamensky, Alexey Zhamnov and Pavel Bure.
Oleg Znarok and Valery Bragin will join the team’s headquarters as consultants.
Russian hockey fans in the comments were surprised at the appointment of Zhamnov, not Znark.
“Thoughtful competent tactics, the strategy of preparation for the main hockey start of the four-year period is immediately visible.”
“The Znarok worked quickly …”
“Of course I understand everything, but I don’t understand this.”
“There are two coaches and four consultants for each player.”
“I don’t understand what is going on in the FHR! Some kind of mess. “
“Well, who should be appointed coach, if not the curator of the night league ?! And that I haven’t coached anyone for a day, it doesn’t matter – the players are all professionals! “
“The znarok, however, will remain the coach of the Olympic winners. FHR at least roughly represents the level of the tournament to which they are sending the team? “
“Fedorov, Zhamnov … Which of the outstanding centers of the 90s will be the next to be appointed to some responsible position in the national hockey? Yashin? “
