Stanislav Rebrov, the father of Ukrainian head coach Serhiy Rebrov, believes that Oleksandr Shovkovskiy can become the head coach of Dynamo. He was acting head coach at the end of the season due to Mircea Lucescu's illness.
"I am for Shovkovskiy! I want him to be the head coach of Dynamo. Maybe he will not succeed at once, as every coach does, but he is his own man, and he knows the spirit and history of the team. He is a Dynamo player to the bone.
I took very positively the appointment of Shovkovskiy as the acting head coach of Dynamo. I thought if he performs well, they will leave him in charge.
But you see, how it turns out. The press say that Mr. Lucescu is not going to leave, and he is going to complete a contract year. I think Shovkovskiy will stay in his team and take Lucescu's place after a year.
Can he repeat the path of Serhiy, who also started as an assistant coach at Dynamo? I think so. During those eight games Shovkovs'kyi has shown himself positively - that he can coach Dynamo. He will be on the books of comrade Surkis", said Rebrov senior.
