“I am very pleased to be part of the Loko family. In the past, the club has achieved amazing results with excellent coaches and has taken a prominent place in the international arena. My task and desire is to continue the work done in the past by great coaches. And try to show that Loko fans “can count on new successes that my predecessors set the bar very high. We have a lot of work to do with very talented Russian players who are an important part of Lokomotiv-Kuban,” Sekulovich said.
