    Before the appointment, Massimo Carrera had served as assistant manager in the team.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Former Italian football player and now manager Massimo Carrera was appointed the new head coach of Russia's Spartak Moscow, the football club said on Wednesday.

    "Today the board of directors of FC Spartak Moscow has decided to appoint Italian expert Massimo Carrera, 50, to the [head] coach post," a statement by the club reads.

    The statement does not give any details of the contract terms agreed with the new coach.

    Carrera's predecessor Dmitry Alenichev resigned earlier in August after the team failed to qualify for the third round of UEFA Europa League.

    A former Juventus player, Carrera was caretaker manager of the team in 2012. In 2016 he moved to FC Spartak Moscow where he served as assistant manager.
