Dynamo is preparing to fire Lucescu: details of the coach's resignation are announced
The head coach of Dynamo Kyiv Mircea Lucescu will be sent into retirement if the team fails to pass Greek Aris in the third qualifying round of the Conference League and prematurely finishes the European season. Moreover, the management of the club is ready to make a similar decision if the Greek barrier is passed, but the team will be eliminated at the next stage.

According to the source, Dynamo president Ihor Surkis and Lucescu have agreed on the amount of compensation in case of early termination of the contract, which expires at the end of the current soccer season. The Romanian specialist will be replaced by the legendary Oleksandr Shovkovsky, who led the team in the spring when the head coach underwent surgery.
