Quite a coup getting him. Highly sought after. Problem is will more than likely not stay too long if he continues to be relatively successful. At least he can stay around to get the club back on it's feet.

At least, Michael Laudrup (yup, he was the coach of my club here in Denmark), aim to stay there longer than he did in Getafe. He want to get into the Champions League, the groupstage in UEFA Cup and be succesful in the russian cup and he wants to learn russian, so he might stay there for longer. If he is succesful and fulfill he's goal, he will for sure get a contract extension and want to stay, to coach them in the Champions League.

Good luck to Laudrup and Spartak! =)

Oh, and it looks like, you'll probably get Andreas Laudrup for your youth system as well, as they're trying to buy him out of the Real Madrid youth team.

Michael Laudrup has been confirmed as the new coach of UEFA Cup hopefuls FC Spartak Moskva, with the former Danish international signing an 18-month contract and pledging to challenge for Russian titles.

Laudrup appointment
The 44-year-old has replaced Stanislav Cherchesov, who left Spartak after their 4-1 UEFA Champions League third qualifying round home first-leg loss to FC Dynamo Kyiv – a result which effectively ended their hopes of reaching the group stage. Laudrup rounded off his successful playing career in 1998 and two years later became assistant to Denmark coach Morten Olsen. In 2002 he took charge of Brøndby IF, winning the double in 2004/05 before leaving a year later, and he spent last season as coach of Getafe CF before resigning in May.

'Good future'
Spartak general manager Valeri Karpin told uefa.com: "We've chosen this coach as we think that he is capable of setting out the team's style and achieving good results." Laudrup, who had also been linked with the position at West Ham United FC in England, added: "Spartak are the best-known Russian club, millions support this team all over the world. This situation can be compared with Spain, where we have Real [Madrid CF] and [FC] Barcelona. However, the difference is that Spartak haven't won the domestic league for a long time. This team has to be at the top, while also achieving good results on the European stage. I think Spartak have a good future."

Baník tie
In the immediate future, Spartak take on FC Baník Ostrava in the UEFA Cup first round on 18 September and 2 October. Laudrup knows all about the competition, having taken European debutants Getafe to the quarter-finals last season, where FC Bayern München edged them out in a memorable tie. In their bid for a first Russian league title since 2001, Spartak lie third, nine points adrift of FC Rubin Kazan with ten games remaining, but only three behind second-placed FC Dinamo Moskva.

I think Laudrup said that his son won't be going to Spartak, that's what I read yesterday.

Anyway, how exactly does Karpin expect Spartak to play in their old style? :howler: They don't have the players to do that.

Bystrov? He's got no brains kleber, c'mon. Pavlenko's skillful but the last three are all strikers and Dzyuba and Bazhenov aren't exactly magicians with the ball.

Titov, Tikhonov, Alenitchev, Tsymbalar, Mosto, karpin, these players wer eperfect for the kruzhestvo style. Spartak's current players are just not skillful enough.

I agree but you need to give time to the youngsters.

With the 6+5 rule in russia in 2010 you have to bet in the russian players whatever you like it or not.

Oh that's actually right. Spartak can't register players now, so he'll go to Lyngby in Denmark instead.
