Once a Red: Kanchelskis

remember Brian Kidd. He was a good coach – I don’t understand now that he works at Manchester City! When I played, he worked at United and he helped teach me things. I spoke to him a lot but Robson as well was a legend to me. He was a brilliant player but also such a good person and a lot of help to me.

What I do these days
I’m back in Russia. I work as assistant coach in the Premier League at Volga Nizhny Novgorod. Before this, I worked as a head coach for two-and-a-half years but I work hard for this team now. It’s pleasing for me because it’s good practice and also it’s good for my coaching career. I went to the Champions League final in Moscow and met Gary Neville, Paul Scholes and Sir Alex Ferguson. So I’m still in contact with the nice personalities at the club. First of all, it’s still a good club that plays great football.
