Ukrainian coach Vernydub, who left Sheriff, headed Kryvbas
MOSCOW, June 21 – Yuriy Vernidub has been appointed head coach of Kryvbas Krivoy Rog, according to the website of the Ukrainian club.
The contract with 56-year-old Vernydub is for three years.
On June 8, Vernidub, on his own initiative, terminated the contract with the Moldavian Sheriff, where he had been working since December 2020. Under his leadership, the team reached the group stage of the Champions League and beat the future winner of the tournament Real Madrid (2:1) on the road.
On June 9, Kryvbas fired two coaches of the youth team due to the lack of a pro-Ukrainian position, and later turned to the clubs of the Ukrainian Premier League (UPL) with a call to hold a national championship in the country.
According to the results of the 2021/22 season, Kryvbas made it to the UPL, finishing second in the First League. The championship was completed ahead of schedule after 20 rounds due to the aggravation of the situation in Ukraine.
