The well-known commentator Gennady Orlov spoke about the possible appointment of former CSKA football player Ivica Olic as the head coach of CSKA.
“He was a good footballer. But a football player and a coach are completely different professions. Olic is the assistant coach for the Croatian national team. There are good players there, and he suddenly came from that place – in CSKA. To put it mildly, a very risky move. I think that Giner would have waited until summer to release Goncharenko, but now he is not in charge there, but Oreshkin. We’ll see. Maybe for a short period CSKA will transform itself. It happens that a change of coach cheers up the players. But what will the new coach offer in the summer, who has not worked as a head coach anywhere yet? They started talking about Olic a week ago, and I opened the Internet to look for some interviews where he would express his concept of football. The coach must test himself, feel what he is saying, how others relate to it. Found nothing anywhere. Puss in a poke! God forbid to be lucky. But it will be some kind of miracle, “Orlov said on the air of Radio Zenith.
Olic played for CSKA as a footballer from 2003 to 2006. He currently works as an assistant coach for the Croatian national team.
Earlier, Shirokov reacted to the resignation of Goncharenko from CSKA.
