Slutsky quits Russia post

Russia coach Leonid Slutsky has officially severed his ties with the national team after they crashed out of Euro 2016 without a win, the country's football union said Thursday.

The union announced in the statement the "end of cooperation" with Slutsky and thanked him for helping Russia qualify for the Euro.

After a disappointing Euro campaign plagued by poor performances on the pitch and hooliganism in the stands, Slutsky said last week he would resign to let another coach manage the national team as Russia gears up to host the World Cup in 2018.
