Coaching career: FC Avtozapchast Baksan (assistant), PFC Spartak Nalchik, FC Lokomotiv Moskva, FC Anji Makhachkala, FC Kuban Krasnodar, FC Terek Grozny, Russia B, Kazakhstan

• An unremarkable player with Nalchik and Avtozapchast, Krasnozhan moved into coaching in the 1990s, making his name during a six-year spell in charge of Nalchik, whom he led into the Russian top flight on a modest budget after finishing second in the second tier in 2005.

• A sixth-placed Premier League finish with Nalchik in 2010 prompted Lokomotiv to bring Krasnozhan to Moscow, but he lasted just six months. He took the Anji helm in 2011, yet stepped down after only two months with the ambitious Dagestan club.

• Similarly inconclusive spells in the Kuban and Terek dugouts followed for the former coach of Russia's B national team.

• Having struck up a relationship with the Football Federation of Kazakhstan (KFF) the previous year – visiting to watch the Super Cup  Krasnozhan replaced Czech Miroslav Beránek as Kazakhstan boss in February 2014, signing a two-year deal.
