Slaven Bilic: Contract cancelled by mutual consent

Former Croatia, Everton and West Ham manager Bilic, 44, took charge of Lokomotiv last summer but could only guide the club to a ninth-placed finish in the 16-team Premier League - the club's worst finish since 1991.

A statement on Lokomotiv's official website said Bilic's contract had been cancelled by mutual consent.

His replacement Kuchuk, 53, is the former manager of Kuban Krasnodar, Salyut Belgorod and Sheriff Tiraspol.
