Vitesse's head, Leonid Slutsky, before the 12th round of the Netherlands Championship by Utrecht, made his opinion on the team's coach against Dick Advocaat.
– I know it very well, because it is very popular in Russia. He worked as a coach at Zenit, and is the best coach in the history of the St Petersburg club. He only won a Russian championship, but won a Zenit in the UEFA Cup and Super Cup Cup.
– I remember the first game between our Russian teams. That meeting finished with a score of 0: 0. It will be great to play again against his team, but this is not a competition between Dick and me. This is a competition between Vitesse and Utrecht. Both teams have points. "Utrecht" is a good team, but I've seen some of their games and I think we are able to win.
"I asked Dick three months before I started working in the Netherlands." I had a lot of questions, and he answered them forever. He said that I would have a great challenge to work in this country, – omroepgelderland.nl Slutsky quotes.
Remember that the lawyer worked at Zenit from 2006 to 2009.
