During a match between teams “Polesie” Zhytomyr and LNZ Cherkassy On May 27, a conversation took place between the president of the Zhytomyr club, Gennady Butkevich, the governor of the Zhytomyr region, Vitaly Bunechko, and the sports director of the club, Yuri Maksimov.
Yuri Maksimov, recently joined Polesie as a sports director, agreed to lead the team “Zvyagel” from the city of the same name, according to FootballHub. The new coach is faced with the task of reaching the First League and cultivating young talents of the region.
It is not yet known whether Maksimov plans to combine these positions or whether he will leave the post of sports director without having worked at Polesie for even a month. “Zvyagel” in the last season of the Second League had a pretty good spring part and took fifth place.
Maksimov’s last job before joining Polesie was Vorskla Poltava, with which he reached the Ukrainian Cup final in the 2019/20 season. And in the 2021/2022 season, he rose with the Poltava club to the European Cup zone – the Vorsk team finished the championship in 5th position, which allowed them to play in the Conference League qualification.
