Leonid Slutsky to leave CSKA Moscow after last Champions League game

Coach Leonid Slutsky is to leave CSKA Moscow following Wednesday's Champions League game against Tottenham, the Russian club have announced.

The 45-year-old took over at CSKA in 2009, replacing Juande Ramos, and guided the club to three Premier League titles and two domestic cups during his time in charge.

Alongside his role as CSKA coach, Slutsky also took the reins of the Russia national team following Fabio Capello's departure in August 2015 but his stay ended after the team's group-stage exit at Euro 2016.

A CSKA statement on Tuesday confirmed Slutsky's impending departure. It read: "After the match with Tottenham in London, Leonid Slutsky will leave his post as head coach of CSKA Moscow.

"CSKA give their thanks to Leonid Slutsky after seven fruitful years together, including three league titles, two Russian Cups and two Russian Super Cups, as well as the incredible emotions that the team under his leadership have given to the huge army of fans.

"Our club doors are always open to you, Leonid!"

CSKA need to beat Spurs at Wembley to pip the Premier League side to third spot in Group E and a place in the Europa League.

Domestically, CSKA are third in the Premier League with 32 points from 17 games, eight points adrift of pacesetters Spartak heading into Russia's winter break.

CSKA announced on Twitter that they will name their new coach before the end of the week.
