Former head coach of the Russian national football team Stanislav Cherchesov admitted the opportunity to work with the Turkish national team. He spoke about this on the air of the Polish program Hejt Park on the YouTube channel Kanał Sportowy.
It was no coincidence that the ex-coach of the Russian national team named a potential new place of work: according to him, he recently held talks with a representative of the Turkish Football Federation. The specialist admitted that he could lead this team.
“They called me themselves. They were also surprised that I know Turkish footballers. I can tell you that I know French, Spanish, Icelandic, Norwegian. I know everyone, this is my profession, ”Cherchesov emphasized.
Earlier, Cherchesov spoke about two countries that offered him a job: Saudi Arabia and China. The coach refused these posts in order to take a break in his career and evaluate the results of his work in the Russian national team.
The contract with Stanislav Cherchesov as the head coach of the Russian national team was terminated on July 8. The specialist has led the team since 2016. Under his leadership, the national team reached the quarterfinals of the 2018 home World Cup and finished fourth in the group at the 2020 European Championship.
