Vanja Drkušić and Martin Kramarič will have a new coach: A professional is arriving, who led a Serbian team into the Europa League
Not long ago, Sochi was the sensation of Russian football, but now the club from the Olympic city is enduring much less pleasant times. The Russian Premier League club, where Slovenian national team player Vanja Drkušić and his compatriot Martin Kramarič play, is facing modest results and is currently even at the bottom of the domestic league.
Interestingly, Sochi has seen three coaches on their bench this season: first, Dmitri Hohlov had to leave, then a few days ago Aleksandr Tochilin was dismissed, and now the team is under Denis Klyuyev. However, the latter is just a temporary solution, and Vanja Drkušić (currently nursing a minor injury, could have played in the last match of this year but the club won’t risk it), Martin Kramarič, and their teammates will soon have their fourth coach in the 2023/24 competitive year!
Meanwhile, Russian media claim that Sochi has found their new coach, Žarko Lazetić. He’s a professional from Serbia currently leading FK TSC Backa Topola. Lazetić was the Serbian runner-up last season and even guided his (current) club to the Europa League this year. This proves his considerable coaching talent, but whether he has enough to save Sochi from relegation remains to be seen.
