Valeriy Kryventsov to take over at Illichivets

Valeriy Kryventsov will start the 2015-16 season as the head coach of the Mariupol club. Yevhen Kotov and Mykhailo Starostyak will join the Illichivets coaching staff of the now ex-coach of the Shakhtar U-19 side.

- Shakhtar are in my heart. I am from Donetsk; I have been supporting and rooting for Shakhtar since my childhood. I have played there and then I have coached at the Academy. But Illichivets are a new challenge to me. It is interesting to me, so I want to make a new step in my coaching career, - the new Illichivets coach has said.

FC Shakhtar would like to thank Valeriy Kryventsov and his assistant coaches for their work. We would like to remind you that under his leadership the Shakhtar U-19 team have won the Ukrainian championship and have reached the final of the UEFA Youth League.
