Former goalkeeper of the Russian national team Vladimir Gabulov left the post of general director of Khimki at his own request, reported on the official website of the club.

Gabulov has been in office since the end of December 2021, when the Moscow Region club was in last place in the Russian Premier League with 14 points. Khimki reported that in the coming days they would announce the appointment of a new general director.

Roman Teryushkov, member of the Supervisory Board of the club, said TASSthat there are no candidates for this post yet, since Gabulov’s departure was “an unplanned event.”

“Unfortunately, Vladimir left the club for family reasons. We did not interfere with this, although we understand that for us this is the height of the season – the remaining three rounds for us are akin to a super final in our history. But we went to meet him and are grateful for the work he did. For a fairly short period of time, there was a series without losses, 15 points – more than in the entire autumn part, ”said Teryushkov.
