Lokomotiv CEO Vladimir Leonchenko wrote the club’s development strategy, which includes the victory in the Champions League. It is reported by “Sport-Express”.
The functionary prepared a document in May for the board of directors. Among the goals there also appear to be a victory in the Europa League, three golds in the Russian Premier League (RPL) in five seasons and becoming one of the 16 best clubs in Europe.
In addition, Leonchenko wanted to increase the total transfer cost of Muscovites’ footballers to 250 million euros (currently it is 87.5 million according to the portal Transfermarkt.de) and to increase the income from fans three times – from 4 to 12 million euros.
Last season RPL Lokomotiv finished in third place. Leonchenko was appointed as CEO of the club in December 2020.
