White Wolves' former head coach Vadim Abramov to lead FC Bunyodkor in the 2019 season
FC Bunyodkor has announced Vadim Abramov replaces Mirjalol Qosimov, who moved to FC AGMK last month.
The 56-year-old was the hero for Uzbekistan as White Wolves earned AFC Asian Cup semi-final spot for the first time in 2011. He was also named as the Best Coach of the Year 2011 in Uzbekistan.
Uzbekistan were unbeaten in the group stage of the Asian Cup 2011, yet Abramov made five changes against Jordan in the quarters, leaving out his main star, Maxim Shatskikh, and trusting Ulugbek Bakaev with a start, which he duly repaid with both goals in the 2-0 victory.
