Dynamo President Igor Surkis explained his position regarding preferences in the appointment of the head coach of the team.
Over the 20 years of the reign of Surkis Jr., the metropolitan club in the vast majority of cases was coached exclusively by former Dynamo players.
Many experts and fans have repeatedly expressed their dissatisfaction with the constant choice of the owner of Dynamo in favor of the so-called. “Dynamo hearts” instead of other Ukrainian mentors or specialists from abroad.

Surkis openly admitted in an exclusive interview with FanDay.net that, for example, he did not apply to the candidacies of the head coach of Zorya Viktor Skrypnyk and mentor of Chernomorets Roman Grigorchuk.
“I never considered Skripnik and Grigorchuk. I always tried to trust the Ukrainian coaches from the club, although I was accused of attracting a lot of Dynamo hearts. But if I had not attracted them, there would have been even more criticism.
To everyone who wanted to work, I gave this opportunity. When I was in Dynamo, there were only three foreign specialists: Semin, Gazzaev and Lucescu.

At the same time, Surkis admits that all the coaches left a different mark after their departure from Dynamo.
“I have always believed in Ukrainian coaches, but for some reason, some were better and some were worse. The same Demyanenko and Mikhailichenko won gold medals with Dynamo.
But Lucescu managed to win everything in the domestic arena with young players without buying a single player. It is worthy of respect”.

Recall that having headed Dynamo in the summer of 2020, the Romanian specialist won the domestic treble with white and blue: the championship, the Cup and the Super Cup of Ukraine, and also qualified and reached the group stage of the Champions League.
