Hull City: Tigers part company with Leonid Slutsky

4 December 2017

Hull City and head coach Leonid Slutsky have parted company following the club's 2-2 draw against Sheffield Wednesday, a result which leaves the Tigers 20th in the Sky Bet Championship.

Slutsky was brought in during the summer following relegation from the Premier League, but he has been unable to resurrect results, winning just for matches since taking over – all of whom sit alongside Hull in the bottom six.

The Russian leaves with Oleg Yarovinsky, the head of club strategy, after a mutual agreement between all parties.

In a statement on the club's official website, Slutsky commented: “I would like to really thank everyone associated with Hull City, from the players and staff to the owner and especially the fans.

“Hull City will always be a part of my heart and I wish the team all the very best for the future.”
