“About what you had to do to finalize Yuri Pavlovich or not, I will say this: he may end the contract. As for the other positions in the club, I don’t know what else, other than coach, Semin could be, not even imagine such a position. Yes, he was President, but, in my opinion, this work was not pleased. It is impossible to say, lose the “locomotive” or will become, time will show”, — quotes the words Smorodskaya “championship”.

Semin headed “locomotive” in 2016. Prior to that, he worked with the team from 1992 to 2005 and from 2009 to 2010. Under his leadership, the team became three times champion of Russia, six times won the Russian Cup three times and the super bowl.
