Luzhny to assist Semin at Dynamo

FC Dynamo Kyiv's newly appointed coach Yuri Semin has named club old boys Oleh Luzhny and Valeriy Zuyev and former keeper Sergei Ovchinnikov as his assistants.

FC Dynamo Kyiv's new coach Yuri Semin has named Oleh Luzhny, Valeriy Zuyev and Sergei Ovchinnikov as his assistants.

Luzhny key
The freshly appointed Semin has chosen Luzhny, who acted as caretaker manager for a month because of previous coach József Szabó's health problems, as his first assistant. Another former Dynamo player, Zuyev, will serve on the coaching staff along with ex-Russia and FC Lokomotiv Moskva No1 Sergei Ovchinnikov, who until recently trained the goalkeepers at the Moscow side. Serhiy Krakovskiy is the goalkeeping coach.

Clear-out
Meanwhile, Dynamo have confirmed that midfielder Valentin Belkevich, 34, and defender Serhiy Fedorov, 32, will leave the Ukrainian title-holders as their contracts are not being renewed. The club have also transfer-listed Badr El Kaddouri, Marjan Marković and Rodrigo, while returning Kamoliddin Murzoyev, Pavel Stepanets and Tomislav Busić after loan spells.
