Oleh Blokhin will remain to be the head coach of the Ukrainian national team until 2014, the president of the Football Federation of Ukraine Hryhoriy Surkis said in the interview.
According to him, the contract with the head coach will be valid for next two years, regardless of who becomes the new head of the federation. Surkis leaves this post in autumn and is not going to participate in the next elections.
He also said that although at first the players were promised 500 thousand euros of sponsorship money for winning the group stage match, after the victory over the Swedes, the Football Federation of Ukraine changed its decision. "As Ukraine came from behind to beat the Sweades, the fee will be not 500 thousand but a million euros," Surkis promised.
