Dutch Gullit From Chechnya: “I don’t want to be involved in politics”

Posted by Info on 10/02/2011

The former Netherlands footbal star Ruud Gullit arrived in Chechnya and met Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov to take over as coach of Russian league club Terek Grozny. Gullit has been criticized at home for his decision.

“You will always have people for and against. But I don’t want to be involved in politics,” Gullit said in an interview published last month in Dutch daily De Volkskrant.
Terek finished 12th this season in the Russian Premier League. Kadyrov has given Gullit a target of a top-eight finish next season. He and Gullit also toured a football stadium under construction in Grozny.

Kadyrov also insisted that Chechnya was “the safest place” on Earth.
Regional police, however, said three explosions hit different areas of Grozny late Tuesday( one day earlier), injuring three police officers and two civilians.
