How is ex-Hull City manager Leonid Slutsky getting on these days?

Hull City have had a pretty eventful few years, with the club now flying high in League One as they look to win promotion back to the second tier.

One of the most surprising decisions the club have made in the past few years saw Leonid Slutsky named as the club’s new manager following their relegation from the Premier League.

The move was surprising in the sense that the 49-year-old had never worked in England before, whilst his two previous jobs had been with the Russian national team at Euro 2016, and CSKA Moscow prior to that.

So, attracting him to the Championship, and it was considered a coup at the time.

However, things didn’t go to plan for Slutsky, as he was sacked in December 2017, months after his appointment, having won just four games. And, here we will look at how his career has gone since.

Slutsky was back in football just a matter of months after leaving Hull, with Eredivisie outfit Vitesse Arnhem appointing him as their head coach.

Did these 20 things happen to Hull City in 2020?

He would spend over 18 months in charge of the Dutch side, managing over 60 games, and having a win percentage of 43.55% before he left in November 2019.

Once again, Slutsky wouldn’t be out of the game for long, as he landed the Rubin Kazan job a matter of weeks later, and it’s a role he still occupies now.

His team are currently 9th in the top-flight, but they are firmly in the hunt for a European finish, as they trail fourth position by just five points, so it promises to be an exciting end to the campaign for the boss.

As Hull fans will remember, Slutsky was a very interesting character, and he has been in the news for non-footballing reasons again recently, as he sung Mariah Carey’s festive hit ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’.
