Lokomotiv Moscow Names Montenegrin Bozovic New Head Coach

Russian Premier League club Lokomotiv Moscow appointed Miodrag Bozovic as its head coach on Saturday.

The Railwaymen, who finished third last season, have been without a manager since Leonid Kuchuk was relieved of his duties last month following a run of poor results.

Kuchuk has not been formally dismissed and is still under contract with Lokomotiv, so 46-year-old Montenegrin Bozovic will initially take over in a caretaker role.

Bozovic has spent a number of years working in Russia and has coached Amkar Perm, FC Moscow, Dynamo Moscow and Rostov, who he helped win last season's Russian Cup.

Lokomotiv have 12 points from nine matches and are ninth in the Premier League table.

They were knocked out of the Europa League by Cypriot side Apollon Limassol in the playoff round.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
